12th | Arbutus, new travel and style magazine to be launched in and for BC
A new, biannual travel and style magazine is hoping to be launched in British Columbia to celebrate the province and its many picturesque attractions. 12th | Arbutus is being helmed by founder and creative director Luke Ehman, who says he was inspired by his late father, James, who shared his passion for exploring unknown territories, thrill-seeking adventure and unpacking history.The magazine's content would cater to both locals and tourists. The magazine is intended to be 144 pages, though its success depends on a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. The fundraising goal is $28,000 by the end of May.
“We highlight a number of shops and places and people – 33 Acres and sit down with the owner(s), Litchfield the Shop, Strike Mvmnt, a stay in Haida Gwaii and background on Haida culture, an Air bnb in Railtown, A stay on Galiano Island, a stay story in Tofino, a hike in Chiliwack (Mt. Cheam) and various other places.”The magazine would also feature stories of places around the globe where BC natives travel or intend to travel, such as Oahu, Hawaii.
