We, of the mtn.
Who is Mtn. & Co.?
Mtn. & Co. stands for Mountain & Company. Why mountain?
In the mid-1700s, a son of the French Huguenot Louis Montaigne, would migrate to the United States of America to flee religious persecution. Upon arrival, he would change his surname to Martin and assimilate into U.S. Anglican culture settling in Halifax County, Virginia. A generation later, one of his own sons would would settle further west in the Appalachian foothills of Montgomery County, Kentucky. It was in this county that many generations of Martins were born, including our founder, the 7th Great-Grandson of Louis de la Montaigne (of the mountain) and 8th-generation Kentuckian. Mtn. & Co. pays homage to the generations-upon-generations of Montaignes and/or Martins who were and are “of the mountain” and the company they keep.
That "company" today represents the network of trusted associates and freelancers which include photographers, illustrators, researchers and developers that collaborate with Adam of the Mountain today. Though our origin may be rural and mountainous, we believe great work can be created anywhere as long as there is an Internet connection and a passion to do great work for others; therefore, we don't force our associates into one office or locale. Location is not a barrier—you're online all day already, so that's where we'll be.
