That predictable growth revelation comes from the latest edition of The Standard Periodical Directory, which will be released tomorrow.

The number of Hispanic titles has grown from 58 in 1996 to 116 in 2006, according to the directory.

Interior design has lead the equally hot shelter category over the 10-year-span (125 in 1996 to 213 in 2006). The number of business and industry publications in the directory, however, has fallen dramatically from 2,505 in 1996 to 1,126 this year.
