MONTECRISTO Magazine Celebrates 5 Years

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. Daily content is posted on
