Historical Facts: This edition of Scribendi was crafted entirely online through video chats and calls, with much revision to create a good magazine design. The inspiration was a Swiss Modern design with some ’70s flare which is notable by our Pantone choice. We wanted to give off a cheerful theme as we move from a dark time into a brighter future. As we planned much of our events online, we were inspired to be close even from a distance.
What you’ll find in this issue: The 2021 edition features work from twenty-six Honors students from seventeen schools across the country. Included in this edition you’ll find architectural models, recreated movie posters, and Russian poems. If you’d like to hold the physical copy in your hands, you can order the print edition here.

El Malpias: A Diné Collection of Pomes by Marie Adele “M’Adele” Little
Inspired by and meant to be constructed in El Malpais National Park, this set of scale models depicts a design for a jewelers’ retreat, complete with studio, gallery, and five living quarters for resident jewelers. The juniper berries and the hexagon shape that create the design are both elements used by the Diné who once inhabited the land of El Malpais.
Two sets of models, at 1:16 and 1:4, were created with basswood and photographed by the artist, emphasizing strong, intentional lighting details and highlighting the calming, natural-feeling design.
