12th | Arbutus: A new travel magazine that captures BC life

May 9 2017, 5:14 pm

BC is arguably one of the most beautiful places in Canada, and there’s no denying that.

And now, one British Columbian named Luke Ehman wants to show the world exactly that with his travel and style magazine, 12th | Arbutus, which focuses on cities and our beautiful province.

“The magazine is inspired by my father who, when I was growing up, showed me all around BC,” Ehman told Daily Hive.

Its content caters to both locals and tourists, providing a background to local shops and the people behind them who contribute to BC’s identity.

At 144 pages in length, the magazine is not your typical read. It features a collection of well crafted stories, photographs, and collaborations from renowned photographers who grew up in BC or still live here.

“We aim to give others a true idea of what BC means to all of us and how we see it for it’s uniqueness and beauty.

“It’s a great guide for tourists to see BC like a local but also provides locals the understanding and background behind some of their favourite spots and shops,” said Ehman.

Cheam) and various other places.”
