Vogue will publish 10 print issues in 2023, down from 11 issues the past three years.

The most recent issue, with features actress Florence Pugh on the cover, is dubbed the “Winter” issue, a phrase that writer Amy Odell, who authored a biography of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, said on Twitter that the brand hadn’t used before when it came to counting issues.

The magazine first departed from its monthly schedule in 2020, when it combined its June and July issues into one.

Cutting back on print issue counts has become commonplace in the magazine industry as it continues to evolve its business model to be digital-first. (Many titles, such as InStyle, Glamour and Self have done away with print entirely.)

Also like many other publications, Vogue is continuing to experiment with digital covers. Earlier this month, it published its first “video cover” starring musician Billie Eilish and Ukranian first lady Olena Zelenska appeared on a digital cover in July 2022.
