ON THE COVER: This detail comes from Jo
Bevilacqua’s “Lionwood,” a unique 1:12
scale garden room box and the product of more than 1,000
of loving labor. A latecomer to miniatures, Jo’s certainly
made up for lost time. See more of Jo’s and her husband
Andy’s work in Penny Herbst’s profile starting
on page 56.
