A few remarks from our readers and contributors:

"Plume has a fine spirit and feel to it...The issue you've presented lives up to its ambitious statement of purpose- which is saying not a little." ~ Roseanna Warren

"A thing of beauty" ~ G.C. Waldrep

"Your first issue is a knockout, and the site very handsome." ~ Patrick Donnelly

"The issue is beautiful, and I'm impressed by the way you've managed both aesthetic range and a sense of holistic synthesis. Looking forward to the next one. And there are a couple of books on the reading list that I didn't know before, and I'm delighted to have been pointed toward them." ~ Kimberly Johnson
