As an aside, they published free promotional posters featuring the first cover. We have ours hanging right by our front door. The artwork on the cover is, true to form for this fine publication, magnificent.

For those who do not know, each month there is a featured work of fine religious art (normally a a painting) that is described in detail from the perspective of a believer.

That is my favorite part. Has anyone else noticed that the pages are now infused with wonderfully fragrant incense?

Awesome, concerning the poster! I like this month's featured icon, the icon of St. Cyril of Jerusalem. I have admired Eastern iconography for some time now. I liked how they explained the pose of his hand that is raised in blessing. There is symbolism in EVERY DETAIL of icons.

I'm not completely sure, but the smell of the pages is vaguely fragrant. Maybe the incense your copy for people who have been devoted to their publication for so long! ;-)
