Country Life today unveils its very special Diamond Jubilee collectors’ issue. With 370 pages, it is one of the biggest issues Country Life has ever produced, and is beautifully presented with a gold embossed cover.
Inside, readers will find quality editorial and stunning photography throughout, including:
· A collection of Country Life’s famous frontispiece pages featuring the Queen (she has appeared on the page more than any other person)
· Her outfits that have seen her through tens of thousands of public engagements
· A look at the life of ancient officers of the kingdom
· The 11 men and one woman who have held the position of Prime Minister during The Queen’s reign and quotes about their relationships with her
· An exclusive interview with The Queen’s kennelman at Sandringham.
There will also be the usual weekly editorial mix of property, architecture, gardens, food and countryside.
The issue includes over 240 pages of advertising, with advertisers including Mikimoto pearls, Clive Christian, Breitling, Aspinal of London, Investec, Mitsubishi and Quintessentially.
Editor Mark Hedges says: “This is one of the biggest issues in Country Life’s 115-year history with 370 pages, which is pretty remarkable for a weekly glossy magazine. The response we have had from advertisers has been phenomenal – in fact, we needed to increase the pagination at last minute to cater for the demand. The editorial team has also pushed the boat out and I’m delighted with the finished magazine.”
Country Life’s Diamond Jubilee collectors’ issue goes on sale today with a premium price of £3.75 (usually £3.20).
