As we starting thinking about our final issue for 2015, we had a few items on our wish list: delicious food was a must, the city had to have a voice of its own, and incredible creatives were a no-brainer. We'd discovered the wintery paradise of Montreal and stayed closed to the Midwest with Columbus. Soon it was clear: the mountains were calling and to Asheville we went!
Graphic designer and letterpress guru Macon York set the scene with an incredible map.
We discovered the passion behind Shelter Protects You...
....and the beautiful design in Smoke Signal's hearth-baked breads & pies.
And man oh man, how can we forget the music and mountains so beautifully portrayed in Carolyn Stotts' cover photo?
2015 was a good year. And we can't wait for 2016!
