  Fridays on the Homefront
The new Fall '21 CA-Modern magazine. Shag's beautiful cover is a harbinger: this issue’s ‘purrfection' offers something for everyone!
 

With a front cover all about house cats by artist extraordinaire Josh 'Shag' Agle that's so eye-catching you'll want to frame it, and articles covering art to entertainment ideal for gift-giving, it's time to get ready for the holidays with CA-Modern's new Fall '21 issue.

The Fall issue offers something for everyone, beginning with the cover story itself, 'Sophisticats.' Jack Levitan mesmerizes us with a tall yet true tale of how the feline form was depicted during the mid-century era, and how it continues to capture the attention of artists engaged with MCM today. It's peppered with some of the most evocative art by Shag, El Gato Gomez, Tomoo Inagaki, and other great artists.

Features editor Dave Weinstein visits with Marin Eichler neighbors in 'Taking to the Hills,' in which he investigates the small-town feeling and informal ties of the Terra Linda Eichlers. There, hills, green space, and a community pool are just a few of the draws in this 850-Eichler community.
