From the editor:
Winter is upon us with all its magic to enjoy. It is an exciting time of the year for those who love nature: when frost and ice lend an enchanting air to the landscape, when skeletal trees and hedgerows glisten so magically and when frozen cobwebs sparkle like precious crystals.
In this issue we are proud to present a selection from the History and Mythology Calendar Artwork, a unique and spectacular calendar series that graced many Irish homes from 1934 to 1967.
For photography enthusiasts we feature the spectacular ‘aero-art’ of Stas Bartnikas, and for fans of dance, fashion and photography alike, we introduce The Style of Movement, a new book by husband-and-wife team Ken Browar and Deborah Ory.
Our travel features bring you on a rapturous journey, showcasing some of the world’s oldest and most beautiful libraries, that will not only intrigue book lovers but also those who admire beautiful and imaginative architecture. We visit Portugal, taking in Porto, one of the oldest cities in Europe, and the beautiful and fascinating island of Madeira – both of which make wonderful year-round holiday destinations.
For those of you who prefer not to venture too far from home, we invite you to cuddle up in a warm winter blanket with your copy of Anthology and lose yourself in this season’s ‘collection of beautiful experiences’.
