BEYOND THE SCREEN

To mark our first anniversary, we have unleashed our onscreen love in print.

The Four&Sons journal is a limited-edition souvenir. It celebrates some of our favourite artists from around the world, for whom their craft and canine companions are inseparable. Raw photography, psychedelic painting and black-and-white illustration—regardless of medium, their inspiration comes from the same, four-legged place.

Within these pages you will find arresting imagery and engrossing interviews that survey the bond between human and dog. In this issue we hark back to Peter Webb’s surf culture icon, Ghetto Dog; sniffle at Traer Scott’s plaintive photographs of shelter dogs and laugh at Theron Humphrey’s snapshots of his coonhound, Maddie, stuck in tight spots.

Time to wag our tails and celebrate.

ISSUE SEVEN — OUT NOW

This issue is about the joy of looking from the outside in. We tap into the routines (and peek inside the houses) of human–dog relationships around Tokyo. We ponder the age-old connection between dogs and horses. We journey with a wild mutt from New York to Zurich. We chuckle over poop-scoop habits around the world. There’s a lot to laugh about in this issue. Be it The McCartney’s pics of dogs in heels, artist Al Taylor’s wee art, John Bond’s drawings (feat a puppy pretzel!) or artist Wilfrid Wood’s bloated dog heads. All this, and more, inside the covers.
