It was love at first sight.
I seriously bought this based on the cover alone. It is BEAUTIFUL. It had to be in my home.
WOW. I opened it up and soon fell down the rabbit hole of The Collective Quarterly. Every page is stunning. Every story is steeped in thoughtfulness and authenticity.
This is Issue 1: Absaroka. Named for a region of Montana that once considered becoming its own state in the Union, this episode of the Collective Quarterly includes a look at the company who supplies bags for US special forces, Blackfeet Indians who make their living with bucking horses, a man who has spent the past few decades following the movements of grizzly bears, and much more.
