I just bought volume 3 here in the UK and love everything about your magazine—especially hearing about all the vibrant, creative, and thoughtful people on the islands.

I am beyond thrilled! My husband came home with the coveted package I’ve been waiting for. Thank you so much for the enclosed personal note. I kept saying to my husband, ‘Wow, who does this anymore??!!’ I can’t wait to sit down after my Zoom book club meeting to dig into this gorgeous magazine. Very happy lady today.

What a pleasure! First, the pungent smell as I unwrapped the package. Then, the weight and feel of the paper in my hands; the visual satisfaction of the matte finish. The beautiful and evocative photographs. The heartfelt words and soul deep stories. Affirming. Recognizing. Thank you!!!

Privileged to have come across the first FOLKLIFE magazine which sent me to Galiano Island where I was privileged to stay for a week + hike every day + was even privileged enough to have dinner at @pilgrimme_rest !

Brooke Smith, Los Angeles, USA

This is just such a beautiful magazine. The content, the photography, and the quality--right down to the feel of the paper--just stunning. Thank you for pushing to make it happen, in these different and challenging times, because your efforts have brought a lot joy to people, including me.
