Illinois' Current Issue…
March/April 2018 Issue
The Country Register of Illinois is published every two months. The time seems to fly by between issues.
For those who prefer to read on-line we are now publishing the complete paper here for you on our web site and will leave back issues on as well. How often we have been called and someone has given their paper away or misplaced it and needed the name or location of a shop, a tea room or wanted to know where there was a paper close to them.
The print edition will still be available as usual in each advertising shop and other select rack locations. Some people will always and forever prefer to sit down in a cozy chair with a cup of tea and read through the paper edition page by page. The younger generations are more apt to go on-line and so we hope to just broaden our readership and bring more customers to the shops because of this extra exposure.
Cover Artist featured in this issue:
Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Richard Cowdrey graduated from the Columbus College of Art & Design in 1981. He has since been a freelance illustrator working with a variety of distinguished clients in editorial, advertising and fine art. Lately he has been most recognized for his work in publishing, illustrating many beautiful children’s books, including the New York Times #1 bestseller Bad Dog, Marley!
Richard’s love for family and nature overflows into his illustrations which are enjoyed by children around the world. He lives in Ohio with his wife and has four grown children and five grandchildren. When not painting in his studio, Richard enjoys visiting schools to share with children his love of illustration.
“I am very thankful to be able to do the type of work I love to do. I recognize where the talent and opportunities come from and desire to honor God with my work and with my life. I care greatly about each piece of art I work on; I care ultimately about each person I work with.”
