Leaving Home

G+J USA is shuttering HomeStyle, its 10-times yearly pub which was overhauled last October. Total circ had slipped 4.6 percent, and ad pages were down 26.1 percent. Not all
publishers are abandoning the home front, however. Meredith will go ahead with plans for Living Room, a new pub on home issues geared at a younger crowd of first-time
homeowners/renters and edited by Bonnie Fuller. The pub is slated to launch sometime this fall. (Gruner + Jahr: 212/499-2092; Meredith: 515/284-3000)
