Issue 17th comes with three bright covers evoking the pleasures of living outdoors: ‘Full bloom moon’, a painting by artist Jenna Gribbon; a peony from ‘Song to Dust’, a story shot in Mexico by Peter Jordanov; and a scene from ‘Come to Life’, an editorial by Clara Balzary inspired by the Black Mountain School.
We visit Lucie and Luke Meier, creative directors of Jil Sander in Zermatt, photographed by Olivier Kervern. We venture into the Bulgarian Rose Valley with Kerry Dean and Lilia Toncheva, and we traverse the Jordanian desert with photographer Tom Johnson. We explore Chillida’s work at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, in a conversation with landscape gardener Piet Oudolf, while bread activist Lexie Smiths reflects with artist Dan Colen about her plot for the Future Food Garden in Sky High Farm.
Find also photographer Thomas Lohr flower diary; Topiary Dreams with Agnes Vita; Ana Dominguez’s Autumnal Herbarium; and Laroche Pottery clays and sculptures captured by Marton Perlaki. For more exciting stories, our regular Loose Leaves section.
