VANCOUVER, Dec. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - MONTECRISTO magazine celebrates its
fifth anniversary in fine style. Actress Kristin Lehman graces the
cover, part of an exclusive story and photography session. But as
always with MONTECRISTO, the cover is just a tantalizing taste of the
varied, in-depth, original stories contained therein.
The mandate from the first issue remains constant: artisanal,
people-driven stories, international in feel with a strong, clear sense
of the community it lives in. Editor Jim Tobler says, "MONTECRISTO is a
magazine that has, both in its print version and in its online version,
been an erstwhile, dedicated, energetic, participatory member of our
community. I can recall, without effort, how this magazine began, and
the people who facilitated it along the way; Douglas Coupland, Sarah
McLachlan, Parviz Tanavoli, Pino Posteraro, Chan Hon Goh, Mario
Gutierrez, and so many more."
This issue features design guru Nancy Bendtsen's private collection of
furniture and interior design items, all museum-worthy and featured in
print for the first time; the Writer's Exchange, committed to building
literacy in inner city children; travel to Naples, Palm Springs, and
Amsterdam; and even a visit with music pipe-maker Boris Favre.
Founder and publisher Pasquale Cusano maintains, "Our vision is to
highlight the many artisans and individuals that do great work but go
unnoticed. Many of them make their home here in Vancouver but affect
culture, design, and decisions around the world."
The Winter 2013 issue of MONTECRISTO is available by subscription and at
select retailers in Vancouver from December 9, 2013, to March 16, 2014.
