Lisbon Bureau: Week 2

March 2018

We’re running through our first proofing now – and you should see the cover – the spring issue at this stage existing as a conversation between editorial and design, living on our laptop screens as we tweak, finesse, discuss, and order.

And of course our setting is infusing the writing and imagery, in theme and topics and focus. An unusual period of rain and thunderstorms isn’t keeping us from our explorations and conversations and engagement with our exotic locale.

We’ll have lots of special, can-only-gather-it-here-and-find-it-in-spring-NQ stuff, including evidence that Portugal’s historic, economic, and cultural connection to Newfoundland and Labrador is literally inscribed in stone

BY Matthew Hollett

I’VE BEEN READING After Icebergs with a Painter, Rev. Louis L. Noble’s imaginative travelogue from a voyage around Newfoundland in 1859. It’s like following a jet-setting paparazzo’s Instagram – except instead of celebrity photos, it’s full of nineteenth-century prose portraits of icebergs.
