A nice way to debut

The magazine Fine Books and Collections, which has the admirable mission of bringing delight to bibliophiles, has posted on its blog a brief piece that starts as follows:
Isn't it heart-warming to know that there are still serious writers and publishers out there - the kind who labor over short stories? Yesterday a new literary magazine was launched. The Folio Club, an independently published literary zine in book form, is dedicated to the art of prose narrative. It has an absolutely gorgeous cover (pictured above), designed by Onsmith, an indie artist known for his comic art.
You can read the rest of the piece, and check out the full wraparound version of Onsmith's cover art, here.
