ABOUT 44 pages

A portrait of Highlights magazine, following the creation of the cultural phenomenon’s 70th anniversary issue, from the first editorial meeting to its arrival in homes, and introducing the people who passionately produce the monthly publication for “the world’s most important people,”…children. Along the way, a rich and tragic history is revealed, the state of childhood, technology, and education is explored, and the future of print media is questioned. Family owned since its inception in 1946 and never containing a single advertisement, Highlights stands alone in the magazine publishing world. From the baby boom generation to the tech savvy kids of today, Highlights has been a staple in American society, with over a billion issues delivered to children around the world.
