We've sold out of issues five and six, but you can still order a sampler of our early issues. Save $1 on each issue when you order the set!
Issue 1: We Dream of Wild Sweets We were so young! Our very first issue, in which Root and Star, drawn by the wonderful Russian artist Lida Larina, had their very first adventure together. These pages also feature French artist Aliette Amm and our friend Abbi Israelsen, who went on to fill so many of our pages!
Issue 2: A Gathering of Furs When we look back at our earlyissues, we see how much we have changed! But thisissuehas some things we turn to again and again. Our wonderful friend Kanjana Yotjan illustrated the yoga pose tadasana, where a bear teaches us to STAND LIKE A MOUNTAIN!Issue2 is also the first time we featured Robb Johnston, who just came out with his third picture book! We feel so lucky that he keeps sharing his work with us. Thisissuealso features two artists from distant corners of the world! Tracey Long from the UK and Lorna Crane from Australia. We love their quirky, inventive work!
Issue 3: The In-Between We like to think of the magazine as a mini-gallery for art from around the world. In thisissue, we feature the wonderful Sofi Dub from Ukraine, as well as two internationally exhibited American artists, Barbara Campbell Thomas and Lauren Luloff. Sabrina Lee contributed Hello/Goodbyes to all sixissuesin our first year, but we have a soft spot in our hearts for the joyful mountain goat who graces the inside covers of thisissue.
Issue 4: The Fish Issue Our personal favorite of the early issues. Fish galore! In every style and every color! We love the variety in these pages. This issue introduces Bethann Garramon Merkle, who is now a regular contributor.
