"When we travel, or get out of our usual environments and into nature, our thinking changes. We see the world in a new light, and consider our own experiences and thoughts differently. It’s with this in mind that we present our sixth issue of Plumbago, with essays, poems, comics, illustrations, and more, about analog tools of creation, but through the lens of traveling and immersing ourselves in nature.
Here are just a few pieces you’ll see:
Ana Reinert and Bob Atkins about collecting globes
Baron Fig’s founder Joey Cofone on leading an urban sketching group through New York City
Tim Wasem, with an Essay about taking a road trip
Vivian Wagner, on retreating away from regular life
And lots more.
It’s all bound within a cover featuring the detailed, intricate art of Diane Wright, a graphite artist.
