Our first print edition in January used our new logo – our second Jared Carter’s image of his beloved Lucy.

In March, one of our talented editors, Tendai Rinos Mwanaka contributed one of his beautiful drawings, and in April we visited unsplash.com, from which we chose a photograph by James Pritchett, and in May we have an original photo from Bob Whitmire.​ June is an image of a painting by accomplished artist Philip Sutton RA, July an illustration by William Blake, and September a painting by Vincent Van Gogh. November's painting is by Abraham Manievich, and January's is by Edvard Munch. Scroll down for more.
