In the meantime, the rest of the company's magazines, from Boston Common to Michigan Avenue to Modern Luxury San Diego, will be producing a singular, special edition May/June "Hope Issue," which Dickey said will focus on "both local and national heroes who have been selflessly innovative in supporting their neighbors," adding that it's the first time in Modern Luxury's history that identical print issues will appear in all of its markets (apart from Hamptons). "The horrible thing about it is that we were having our best year within... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
