As time moves on and technology advances, I find myself with an overwhelming desire to pull back on the reigns a bit. I love the web and all the opportunities and advancement it represents, but I also really love the simplicity and beauty of paper. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed embracing and supporting a wide range of smaller print publications, and I’m glad to have a new one to add to that list: 3191 Quarterly.
3191 began almost five years ago as “Year of Mornings” with Maria Alexandra Vettese and Stephanie Congdon Barnes. Maria and Stephanie lived on opposite coasts (Portland, ME, and Portland, OR) and decided to document the way they started their mornings and then later, their evenings. I’ve loved watching their collaboration grow, and I’m thrilled to have a new way to watch its progression. 3191 Quarterly is now offering subscriptions for the 2011/2012 season (with one full issue free) until December 11th. After that, the subscriptions will close for the year, so if you’re looking for a creative gift idea for a friend or just a nice way to treat yourself to something special in the mail, click here to check out 3191 Quarterly and order a subscription ($99). I’m especially excited for their “At Home” section, which will now appear in every issue. Congrats to MAV and Stephanie on five years of great ideas and beautiful photos. xo, grace
