It’s official!

3191 Quarterly issue No. 5 releases today (that’s the back cover shown above). We’re very proud of this issue and very excited for the 3191Q year ahead. This week I wanted to sit down with my cup of coffee (go grab yourself something hot too) and share a few peeks at the issue.

I really love this spread that features sparkles from me (left) and MAV (right). Despite the distance and the differences in our day-to-day lives, there is always a touch of that synchronicity. MAV’s photo is also the entry into our new commemorative photo gallery section. Printed on a glossy paper insert, “Deep Summer 2011″ features favorite photos from our summer at a scale and quality that we’ve not really been able to share before now. We’ll be sharing seasonal retrospectives in all of this year’s future issues as well.

I could stare at this photo of MAV’s all day. It’s a little respite from our current dark and dreary days.

Something special I created for this issue was a collection of textile sculptures made from natural indigo-dyed fabrics and leather. I photographed these imposters on the real forest floor.

I had great fun learning about making pickles with my friend Melissa, and you can too.

Perhaps my favorite section chronicles our adventures when we were 0 Miles Apart. Maine, I miss you!! It was fantastic to be able to work side-by-side, not just to put the issue together, but to create much of the content that you’ll find in this issue. I hope you will see another 0 Miles section in a future issue of 3191Q. It’s time for MAV to travel the 3191 miles, so I can show her around my Portland.

I want to offer a tremendous thank you to all our subscribers. We are so grateful for your support and interest (especially you re-subscribers!). I hope you are enjoying your Issue No. 5. Subscriptions are a great deal (you receive one issue free along with discounted shipping), and they are only going to be available for a few more weeks (ending December 11). We have some exciting things planned for this year of 3191 Quarterly, so I want to encourage folks to take advantage of this deal as it won’t be offered again (all future issues will be sold individually only).
