Tatler -- the 300-Year-Old Magazine

So you think you're doing well because your magazine is 10 years old? Ha! The UK's Tatler magazine, published by Condé Nast, is celebrating its 300th anniversary.

Wikipedia puts a bit of context around this. There have apparently been a number of magazines using the Tatler name, and each claims to be the successor to the previous one. So it's not a single, uninterrupted run. Still, in this era of magazine deaths and rebirths and layoffs, let's just celebrate the three-century-old publication and not look too closely at the details.

Oh, and there is, inexplicably, a Russian edition of Tatler. Nothing against Russia, but of all the nations in the world, I'd have expected Tatler's only foreign edition to be elsewhere.
