The Country and Abroad invites you to help celebrate our 20th year of publishing the finest in reading literature, graphics, and design. Our magazine features a wide variety of topics ranging from coverage of the fine arts—museums, art galleries, and antiques to music, theater, and dance, also country cuisine and restaurants, local wines, ales, and spirits, histories of local towns and events, book reviews, home design, gardens and landscaping, and interviews with local artists, writers, actors, and town leaders. Our short fiction and poetry are popular with our readers, and our themed and seasonal issues are favorites with our advertisers.

From our inception, we have published newsworthy, in-depth, well-written articles—for people who love to read and enjoy fine art illustration and design. We feel that our extra-large format not only enhances our covers and interior art and illustration but also your ads, which are printed larger on quality glossy stock yet lower in price than those found in smaller magazines. We have found that our readers who enjoy and appreciate our coverage and commentary are the same people who frequent art galleries and museums, theaters, concerts, music festivals, films, poetry and book readings, and of course fine restaurants and inns. We have learned how to entertain a literate reading public with income to spend on the finer necessities of life.

We are continuing to expand our distribution and readership on both sides of the Hudson, particularly in Dutchess, Columbia, and Ulster Counties in New York; Litchfield, Fairfield, and New Haven Counties in Connecticut; Berkshire and Hampshire Counties in Massachusetts; and the Shires of Vermont.

Eagerly read and collected by weekenders from New York City and Boston as well as residents throughout the quad-state region, our subscription list reaches out to California, Arizona, Colorado, Washington, Florida, Michigan, Chicago, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Utah. Why? Because we are much more than a home-resource guide or calendar of events or “adzine.” We have emerged as an “arts” magazine.
