Dear ACCESS readers,
I do hope this finds you well. They say, ‘good things come in threes,’ and I cannot believe this is already my third time around as editor of ACCESS magazine. I am delighted to present our latest edition: The art of nature.
In this first issue of 2023 – with beautiful cover art by https://illustrizzy.com – we explore the natural world of the Netherlands and look at everything from service animals to pet travel, conservation to reintegration. We also treat you to some stunning images kindly shared with us by the Natuurmonumenten and bring you a review of the spectacular book Between the Sea and the Sky by Jimmy Nelson. All that and much more besides…
I hope you will find the magazine to be an enjoyable read and might even discover something you did not know about the country we call home.
Once again, this publication would not have been possible without the support and dedication of our talented writers (Giulia, Joanna, Katarina, Lynette, Molly, Olivia, Sandra, and Steve), artists/illustrators (Elisabeth and Priyanka), designer (Marek), and proofreader (Nancy). Your time and effort are hugely appreciated – ditto for everyone who contributed. I must also give a special shout out to L.T. for taking on our fiercely fabulous and fascinating cover story.
I must admit that this edition of ACCESS magazine is particularly special to me as it marks my last as editor. After one year in the role (how time flies), I have made the decision to step down. Working as editor for the publication has been a tremendous experience and one that I will treasure. My sincerest thanks to all at ACCESS, and to the wonderful writers, artists, designers, and contributors with whom I have had the pleasure to work. My successor should be appointed soon, and you can expect another edition of the magazine later this year.
To close, may I take this opportunity to say farewell and wish you all the best… happy reading!
