How much would you be willing to fork over for a subscription to a magazine about quantitative finances? Forget the ten to twenty dollars you’d pay for a subscription to Maxim, Cosmo or Rolling Stone. Quantitative analysts who want to keep up to date in their chosen profession may need to pay up to nearly $700 for the most expensive magazine subscription in the world.
Individual subscribers pay only $325 for a year-long subscription while institutions pay $650. Subscribers to the expensive magazine are also inducted into the Wilmott Book Club, giving them discounts on many quantitative finance and popular science books.
For the most expensive single issue, however, we’ll have to turn to Kohl magazine. The United Arab Emirates’ one and only women’s lifestyle and fashion magazine, Kohl is targeted at expatriate Asian women.
Publisher ITP teamed up with Damas, a UAE jeweler, to create the stunningly bejeweled cover for the single most expensive magazine in the world. The cover, which features sexy Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif, was hand-made with 91 grams of gold and 622 diamonds. Gold leaf was applied by hand to the cover as part of an 86 hour process.
