Love is all you need
Ex 'Pop' launcher Katie Grand is set to launch her new magazine, which it is now revealed, will be called 'LOVE'.
Katy Grand started out working on the launch of Dazed & Confused, and next The Face, before she launched Pop in 2000.
After a year of working at both Pop and The Face, she left The Face in 2001 to concentrate on Pop, which is owned by Baur.
She then continued to edit Pop for 8 years before leaving recently when her and her whole team were bought by Condé Nast, who have previously tried to buy Pop from Baur.
The magazine is said to be twice-yearly and will be priced at £5. It is also said to be larger than many of the publications on the market. The cover star will also be Beth Ditto, which has caused some bloggers and fashionistas alike to be confused at the choice as opposed to a model as expected.
The magazine will launch February 2009.
A 'secret' blog has surfaced by the Love team, which is giving nothing away just yet..apart from Giles Deacon enjoys a good scotch egg of course.
