About Tokens magazine

Leaves by John Grauer

Tokens magazine is striving to establish its presence as the distinctive artistic voice of a regional Bahá’í community. While we are open primarily to contributions from Bahá’ís and friends of the Faith, resident now or formerly in the Delaware Valley region, still we try to be inclusive. We draw no distinction between professional artist and amateur. We adhere to no particular school or style but strive to share everyone’s contributions in written and visual arts.  We seek to share contributions that reflect some aspect of a spiritual journey in an authentic voice, but the subject may not be explicitly Bahá’í or even religious in nature. However, the magazine is sponsored by the local Spiritual Assembly of Philadelphia and is primarily disseminated to a religious community so it reflects the values and standards of that community.

We publish Tokens magazine only in print form as part of our commitment to our literary heritage.  It is printed on acid-free and lignin-free paper using stable inks and is bound with stainless steel staples for long life.  When you hold a copy of Tokens in your hands you will feel even closer to the artists and poets who have contributed to it.
