According to The Sunday Times, it is also the highest revenue issue of the title it has ever published.

The cover features actress Jane Fonda.

Style editor Jackie Annesley said: “At 78 years young, Fonda is an icon for women around the world. She is a respected actress, campaigner and feminist and in our exclusive interview, she tells Tom Shone she’s ‘just beginning’. That is a powerful message to send out from our biggest ever edition.”

Glossy fashion advertising appears to be providing particularly resilient though. In March Vogue published the biggest edition in its 100-year history with 275 pages of advertising.
