Etymologically, Folio originates in the Latin singular form of “folium” – leaf. Folio is leaf of a manuscript or book, and a standard size sheet of paper once folded – like the folded newspaper sheet. – The magazine dedicated to art, culture and joy of life, as we defined it in the subtitle.
The cover of the first issue features the photograph of a leaf from the tree Paulownia tomentosa, also Princess Tree, from the flowering figwort family (Scrophulariaceae), the photo having been taken in Maribor. It grows in most peculiar places, crevices and cracks, drainpipes ... In its first year, it grows several meters high, having enormous leafs. The continuation is a matter of survival in a hostile environment.
Folio is in good company: Folio Society is a British publisher of fine illustrated books, Folio is a monthly magazine for the publishing industry and the name of a new wave band from Los Angeles, whereas Folio Corporation is a software company – and Folio is the name of the magazine, in Slovenian and in English, being published in Maribor.
