A NEW-LOOK Grapevine emerges – smaller size/format, more compact (same as Readers Digest) … much thicker (twice-as-many-pages) … with a tougher, glossy cover. Why the change? So Grapevine can go into letterboxes without being folded (or mangled!) … won’t half-hang-out, get wet, blow away … will be more durable (for flicking through, filing, future reference) … and easier-than-ever to handle in bed or on the loo!
Content remains the same: quality research, tonnes of fun, family-friendly – plus a whole bunch of new ideas/columns/highlights! Like what? Well, like ‘AT HOME WITH …’ series, featuring ‘new Kiwis’ from all around the world.
“I love Grapevine!” writes Margaret. “I haven’t even read it all yet. But one minute I’m crying, the next I’m laughing, and then I’m crying and laughing at the same time! Thank you sincerely …”
“Having just sat down in the sun and read your magazine from cover to cover, I’m writing to tell you that it’s absolutely bl- – -y marvellous!” declares Rob. “Grapevine is exactly what New Zealand families need, and I can’t believe I’ve been missing out on something so good all these years!”
“The only problem I have with Grapevine is who to pass it on to – so many people like it!” complains Joan.
Meanwhile, great Grapevine cover-stories keep coming: ‘KEEPING FAMILIES TOGETHER IN A WORLD THE PULLS FAMILIES APART’ … ‘PUNCH-UP IN THE FAMILY: MAKING THE MOST OF CONFLICT AT HOME!’ … ‘EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT SEX (BUT WERE TOO EMBARRASSED TO ASK YOUR CHILDREN)’.
