Dear Readers,

Welcome to our twelfth issue, an edition about creative adventures. Though some of our contributors have gone great distances in a quest for creative challenge, the everyday can offer ample adventure if you have the right frame of mind and know how to look for it.

We also indulge in a passion common to readers of UPPERCASE magazine: our love of paper. It is safe to say that a large number of you—designers, craftspeople, and illustrators—make a living through this basic material in one way or another. In this issue, we will meet a variety of artists, authors and entrepreneurs whose creative lives are bound to paper.

I hope that this issue of UPPERCASE magazine becomes a trusted map, guiding you on your own unique creative journey.
