Viola Frey headlines this issue. I challenge anyone to find a better interview of her. If it weren't for Viola, we could almost say this issue is devoted to remarkable artists who are not well known. But who really knew Frey? The interviews with Dickson Schneider and Terrance Meyer are treasures. And then we have the pleasure of tchotchkes, The Garden of Montini and a really odd collection of vases. Bringing intriguing stuff to readers that no one else can or will is one of our joys.
