With more than 3,000 titles in the store, Issues contains enough information to finally put the smug Dewey Decimal System to shame. Brush up on foreign policy with the latest issue of the Monocle ($10), ruminate on the cultural impact of food (especially the beautifully photographed variety) in Gastronomica ($13), or challenge your love of corporations with some anti-corporate critical thinkery with Adbusters ($8.95).

When he was a ceramics student, Bryan Goldenberg was struck by the softness of hot glass and the clean lines that resulted from shaping it. He switched his artistic focus in 1995 and has been creating glass art ever since, settling down in 2006 in the 2,300-square-foot Slow Burn Glass studio he designed and built. The themes of color and lines are a steady thread throughout his work, whether he's exhibiting hand-blown glass bowls in galleries throughout the country or demonstrating how to mold a multihued light fixture out of glass and firefly essence during hands-on classes.
