North by East

A wild Peaks Island art festival goes underground, playwright Bess Welden pens a script with help from refugees, Maine writer Elisabeth Wilkins Lombardo‘s posthumous novel is published, and the Maine Mariners take the ice for the first time.

Good Things from Maine

Old-school agricultural tools from Perry’s Scythe Supply, plus Cumberland’s Vintage Bazaar craft fair and our contributors dishing on their favorite Maine shops and makers.

Maine Homes

A mod addition for a classic farmhouse in Owls Head, colonial reading lamps and primitive bowling balls in our own Antiques Roadshow, and a super-efficient DIY ski camp from Bungalow in a Box.
