Review:

Far-ranging and aptly named, Faces magazine explores themes and whole countries from many perspectives through resonant photographs, lively and thoughtful text fueled by serious research, and a between-the-lines message of human commonality and interconnectedness. One recent issue profiled Cambodia, delving into its history, geography, wildlife, celebrations, archeological riches, and environment activism, as well as the dangerous ongoing effort to clear the land of millions of landmines and its cultural rebirth after the Khmer Rouge. Other issues have spotlighted Austria, Europe's Basque region, and dogs-their breeds, anatomy, origins, famous dogs in life and fiction, crime fighting dogs and rescue dogs, and dogs in mythology. Informative without being pedantic, Faces gives readers a window on the world and a sense of their shared place in it.
