Arizona Highways Magazine Celebrates 90 Years With Anniversary Issue
April marks 90 years of publication for Arizona Highways magazine. As a tribute, the editorial staff dug through roughly 1,100 issues to assemble a collection of words, photos, ads, maps, art and other memorabilia that proved to be some of the most popular items ever published by the magazine. The original work of art on the front cover was created by world-renowned painter and Arizona native Ed Mell. Signed, limited-edition prints of this fine art will be available for sale at $49.99. Proceeds will benefit Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona. The iconic map on the back cover was originally created in 1940 by George Avey. This will also be available as a limited-edition print for $19.99. Both prints will be available for purchase at shoparizonahighways.com or by calling 1-800-543-5432. Also, for one day only, a digital 12-month subscription to Arizona Highways will be available on April 1 at the cost of just $1, the same price for a subscription to the magazine in 1925, the year it launched. The sale will begin at 8 a.m. on April 1 and last until midnight at shoparizonahighways.com. The special price for the digital subscription is limited to the first 10,000 customers on April 1.
