There’s a concept in Jewish culture which states that a thing only becomes permanent after it is done three times. In that sense, Trellis Magazine is now a real magazine, because we’ve reached our third issue!
This time around, we are covering a topic which has exploded in popularity and has become the buzzword du jour: Minimalism. From best-selling books to documentary films, minimalism and “simplicity living” are transforming people’s lives across America. It has become a phenemonon that is affecting culture on a higher level, from changing architecture to a renewed focus on sustainability.
Check out our report on the minimalist movement, our interview with a practitioner of simplicity living, our film review of the Minimalism documentary, and much more. —JW
