Magazines are periodical publications containing articles, poetry, images, and other material. Historically the name derives from the use of "magazine" as a storage facility. The Gentleman's Magazine in 1731 started by describing itself as "a Monthly Collection to store up, as in a Magazine, the most remarkable pieces" on the subjects it had chosen to deal with.
Most magazines publish for an intended audience more specific than that of newspapers. This is often defined by gender (Ladies Home Journal), age (Teen Vogue), profession (American Cinematographer), hobby (Amateur Photographer) or other interest (Classic Rock).
