Each issue also features as the cover art a well-known or up-and-coming artist, making every edition a unique collectors item for our Cardmembers.
Eating good food with friends and family, whether in a restaurant of the moment in a haute hotel or by a street food vendor in a bustling city, is the staple of cultures around the world, says Editor-in-Chief Deborah Frank. Its as important to a societys identity as art and design is to its character. Exploring cities and countries through their food, museums, and architecture are what makes travel that much more exciting.
Highlights from the Fall issue include:
Cover Artist: Joan Mir³
Spanish painter, sculptor, and ceramicist Joan Mir³, who earned international acclaim for his contributions to the arts, adorns the cover of our Fall issue with his 1969 Fissures, plate 12.
Instantly recognizable, his signature random drawing attempts to express the inner workings of the human psyche. Mir³ used color and form in a symbolic rather than literal manner, rejecting the constraints of traditional painting and famously stating, I want to assassinate painting. Mir³s influence and legacy are now honored at the Mir³ family farm in Mont-roig del Camp, known as Mas Mir³, whose landscapes inspired the artistworth the drive from Barcelona.

Catering to high-end clientele, traditional retailers are creating intimate, convenient shopping destinations that deliver a mix of home, wellness, fashion, fitness, high-end restaurants and unique experiences. In Shop ˜Til You Drop, our editors take a close look at three small-scale retail centers that strike the balance between commerce and community.
