The New Yorker magazine's October 15 edition is diplayed in an Upper East Side newstand in New York on October 9, 2012. The New Yorker has created a cover illustration, titled “One on One,” by Barry Blitt of the first presidential debate between President Barack Obama and GOP opponent Mitt Romney that seems to be a parody of Clint Eastwood‘s speech involving an empty chair at the Republican National Convention.

The Audit Bureau of Circulation released its magazines report for the second half of 2012 on Thursday.

Total circulation for magazines dropped 0.3% from the same time the year before and newsstand sales fell a substantial 8.2%. Paid subscriptions, however, rose 0.7%. The results also reflected overall shifts in the industry, according to the ABC, as "the number of average digital magazine copies sold has more than doubled compared with the second half of 2011."

The 25 magazine titles with the highest circulation generally stayed consistent over the past year. Circulation for Woman's Day and Family Circle saw the greatest changes within the top 25: Woman's Day decreased 13.2%, while Family Circle increased 7%.
