I'm very excited to be holding in my hands an early copy of ISSUE 2::PATHS, our second issue of Taproot!
For those of you who subscribe to our email newsletter, you've already heard these words from publisher Jason Miller's mouth, but truly, we feel as though we've 'hit our stride' with this issue. I'm so proud of it, so grateful to the contributors who shared their stories and art, so encouraged by your words and enthusiasm to our first issue. It's been a pleasure to make this magazine.
You'll see the gorgeous cover up above, by Jennifer Judd-McGee. Yes, she did the cover for SOIL as well. I'm so pleased to tell you that she is our 2012 cover artist, meaning that our first four issues, through all the seasons of a year, will be by her hand. We are so thrilled!
Inside the pages, you'll find voices both familiar and new (our full contributor list can be found here). It is our hope that you'll find inspiration, education, and surely entertainment. I know that I did, as each and every article and piece of art came together for it.
We are happily still able to offer the Founders Rate of $25 for US subscriptions, and now an easy-to-use gift option is available on the site (we rather think it makes a lovely gift!). Be sure, as well, to check out our Happenings page, as we'll be at a few events in the coming months and would love to say hello should you be nearby.
Subscriber issues begin shipping this very week, so I anticipate your issues (in the US, at least) will be in hand so very soon.
