Putting some “gloss” on the NZ Herald compact launch

The first edition of the New Zealand Herald in compact format will include two new magazines – a special, commemorative glossy publication, The Magazine, which is being published to celebrate the launch of the new Herald, and Bite, a new weekly food and wellness magazine.

The new magazines and the first Herald compact hit the streets for the first time next Monday, September 10.

Olympic medalists, Lisa Carrington and Sarah Walker, star in a special photo shoot for the cover of The Magazine – capturing the essence of the publication which celebratesour country, our people, our achievements, talents and lifestyle.

The Magazine is a snapshot of life in New Zealand. Its pages are full of reminders of why we are all lucky to live here,” said The Magazine editor Jane Phare.

“Just look at the determination on the faces of the kids we’ve photographed tearing around sports fields and courts, and there’ll no doubt be a new Lisa Carrington or Sarah Walker somewhere in the mix.”

The Magazine showcases some of the country’s best journalists and writers.

“The essays alone, like James McOnie’s funny take on Godzone, Peter Calder’s words on New Zealand of age, and Gilbert Wong’s take on Four Weddings and a funeral, are a delight to read,” says Phare.

Bite will be a weekly liftout magazine published with the Herald each Monday. Targeted at busy people who like to cook, Bite will be full of fresh, simple meal solutions to help you put good food on the table. The magazine also looks at new ways to ensure their health and wellbeing.

"Bite will be a bright little button at the start of the week, providing readers with a useful and accessible guide to creating balanced lifestyles", says Bite editor Jo Elwin, an experienced food publisher.

Regular contributors will include Chefs Al Brown, Geoff Scott and Bevan Smith, Celia Hay from the NZ school of Food and Wine and Masterchef winner Nadia Lim.
