    Luscious eye candy! I always look forward to the next Somerset Studio; the one publication I would take with me to a deserted island.

    One request: Can y’all please add the word “pored” to your spell-checker? It bugs me to no end to see it spelled “poured” and it’s occurring more and more often in your magazines. (And while I’m at it, “crumbled” is something you do to a cookie; “crumpled” is what you do to paper.) Thank you! :)

  2. Elvia says:

  9. While visiting a bookstore in the City, I stumbled upon your Somerset Studio magazine. Just devoured it, loved it and had to visit your website to subscribe. As I live in the country, am anxiously awaiting my next issue to arrive in the mail. I have since subscribed to Jewellry Affaire and Art Doll Quarterly. Spend hours pouring over your emails as well. Thanks for publishing such beautiful magazines that are works of art themselves.
