Okay, so here it is....
The burning question as posed to me by Susanne at Jeanne d'Arc Living first thing this morning:
Hi Ruth, Could you please answer me, how many magazines you think you could sell (more then today), if the magazine is in english?? Kærlig hilsen /best regards Susanne Jeanne D´Arc Living
I really didn't know what to say at first....
I mean for as long as we've known and loved Jeanne d'Arc Living magazine, it has been in Danish only.
Honestly, that is part of it's charm, it's allure, it's mystique.
Issues 3 and 4 above
the coming issue 5 below!!
But I then I thought about it further....
Well...English "subtitles" might not be so bad, huh?
I mean, if they kept the Danish text but just added the English translation below (or somewhere) that wouldn't "ruin" it for us, would it?
So I ask you...
If I told you that starting next year, all the new Jeanne d'Arc Living magazines were going to either be published completely in English,
at the very least published with English translation somehow,
how (if at all) would that :
Affect your view of the magazine?
Influence your decision to purchase it?
Alter the "mystique" of the magazine (at all)?
I told Susanne I'd ask you guys about this -- who better to ask, anyway?
It is YOU who have embraced the entire Jeanne d'Arc Living range of products -- magazine included -- so YOU are who I thought of when she asked me this question...
Susanne and I EAGERLY await your comments!!
What thinkest thou??
Inquiring minds want to know!
PSST!!! One more thing!
I couldn't resist showing you two pages from the coming issue #5.... and you know what?
You see that gorgeous silver two-tier serving piece on that gorgeous table?
It's headed our way!
And that totally charming metal chalk board hanging in the second pic?
You guessed it --
coming our way, too!
Both these new things (and a bunch more!) should be here in early September!
Looking forward to hearing your ideas/thoughts on the possibility of Jeanne d'Arc Living magazine going "English"!
Yours in the Danish/English "debate"...
