    In this issue, we explore the weird and fascinating world of color. Where did color come from? Some say New Jersey, and some say outer space. No matter what your opinion, Issue #10 explores how we see color and how we use color.
    Renowned children's book illustrator JooHee Yoon provides a bombastic, cacophonous cover that will wake up any sleepy reader. Inside, you'll find tons of glorious short stories, haikus, and interviews written by young people across the world, as part of Illustoria's partnership with youthwriting.org, The International Alliance of Youth Writers.
    Issue #10 also features DIY watercolor travel palette instructions, perspectives from National Park Service rangers, everything one needs to know about the technicolor mantis shrimp, the outlandish costumes of the medieval era, and much more. Think of this visionary issue as your own personal binocular-microscope-kaleidoscope in one. Don't miss it.
    Illustoria is the official publication of the International Alliance of Youth Writing Centers, publishing writing and art by young people alongside accomplished professionals.
