From J.R. McRae’s striking cover image, to Jamie Provencal’s beautiful photographic slices of life, to the amazing sketches and doodles of true artists like Frank Allen and talented storytellers such as Tamim Sadikali our April issue of Vine Leaves is a thing of visual beauty.
That art carries through to the text.
Because your words are beautiful. From the haunting prose of Theresa Milstein and Carrie Mumford (The Blemish Collector will give you shivers) to the controversial and quirky work of H. Edgar Hix and Greg Belliveau, each vignette merges to create a vivid snapshot in time and place.
And there’s no other place we’d rather be.
We’ve pared down our page count for this issue, not because we lacked in talent or submission volume, but to better give each published piece its deserved time in the public eye. Your eye.
We invite you to join us with a glass of wine for this spectacular journey of visual inspiration.
And to each of you – our readers and contributors – we salute and thank you.
