English naturalist John Ray once said, “Beauty is power.” It comforts the soul and brings us sanity, grace, and hope. In this issue, we invite you to join us on a journey of seeking beauty as we embark on a new year. From the Canadian “fairy godmother of fashion” to the innovative artist reviving the ancient egg tempera technique, from awe-inspiring jewellery fused with eastern aesthetics to the artistic creations of a Michelin-star chef, we explore beauty in its different forms and cultural variations. We hope you enjoy these stories and live beautifully in the new year. Order issue 116 today!
