Portland — Maine Magazine’s publisher is releasing yet another magazine to join its growing stable of properties, this one dedicated to cataloging and celebrating all the other magazines it publishes.

Maine Media’s new monthly magazine is called Media: Maine Media’s Maine Media. It showcases people reading, enjoying, and sharing Maine Media magazines while peering thoughtfully across a beach, or sitting in front of a roaring fireplace inside a cozy cabin.
At the front of every magazine is a Who’s Who of people living in Maine, enjoying Maine Media Collective properties at swanky wine tastings in and around the Portland area.
“With over 700 magazines about various parts of Maine life, it seemed only natural for a magazine about all the other magazines to be our next project,” said Chief Operating Officer Andrea King.
The new magazine will be available in the Maine Media Collective magazine rack located in every coffee shop in the state, or you can pick up a complimentary copy next time you’re at one of Maine’s Subaru dealers.
Features include photos of stacks of magazines like Maine the Magazine, Maine Home + Design, eat maine, and hundreds of others like maine cheese, Farm + Fun!, and lighthouse and sunset monthly.
There are also detailed descriptions from people who read the magazines, praising the paper stock, the weight of the magazines, and the bindings. The remaining 70 percent of each issue will be ads.
The content you’ve come to expect from Maine Media Collective is here, but there’s one major change from its flagship periodical: unlike Maine Magazine, Media: Maine Media’s Maine Media doesn’t approach its subject matter superficially.
