Spring Issue Cake

Once again, we're celebrating the release of our Spring issue with a delicious cake by the incomparable Lorna Dawes! The issue's cover, Fidencio Martinez's Countrymen, was created using acrylic, paper, and maps.

Martinez was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, but raised in North Carolina, and his work manipulates maps and newspaper cuttings to refer to the crafts and customs used to celebrate festivals and mourn the dead. It also makes for an excellent cake.
