In our winter issue 2006 we met the cigar lover and artist Stella Motyka. Her art of painting several paintings at the same time points to a distinctive trait of the painter. On a leisurely afternoon in her house, the native Slovak tells us how she uses the cigar while she is devoting herself to her next work of art.
We also report on the increasing size of InterTabac, even though the opinions of the public are always negative. The history of the Fuente family and Best Places to Smoke in Portugal.
If you missed this edition, you can order a back-issue.
