Venice, Italy

This group of friends brought The Rake along to Europe not only because they “could not stand the thought of missing a single issue” but also because they wanted to share their love of Peter Schilling’s work with the world. They took The Rake racing on the autobahn, hiking in the Alps, sampling wine in Italy and eating one cheese covered meal after another. They had a great time taking plenty of Red Handed photos as well.

They also said: Thanks for “raising the bar” for local papers and keeping us entertained, informed and amused.
