While most magazines are in the range of costing $5-15 there are certain luxury magazines that have ridiculously high prices per issue. There’s nothing too special about these magazines aside from the price points of the products that they are showing off inside each issue, but they are all the same as the others on the rack, but let’s take a look at the world’s most expensive magazines.
