The Day of the Renaissance Person
You read Overland because you’re interested in politics but you’ve also got your finger on the cultural pulse. You like poetry but you love prose. You’re in print but you’re online. You don’t just like art – you’re into music, film, philosophy, theatre.
In other words, you, my friend, are a Renaissance Person – and today’s specially for you.
As per the normal Subscriberthon process, any subs, renewals or $40 or more donations go into pot for the massive overall prizes (scroll down). But there’s also some special inducements just for today.
Feast your eyes on these!
