How Magazines are Really Made

How Magazines are Really Made I'm guessing many of you may have already seen this insider infographical gem from Andrew Losowsky of Stack America, who cooked it up along with the art team at Bloomberg
Businessweek
. Still we just couldn't resist sharing this healthy dose of cynical fun with our audience on the off chance you missed it.

If you're in the business already, much will ring true and if you're a student pay close attention as this revealing information can save you months of trying to figure out the complex internal politics of editorial design and magazine making.
