DOG OF DERELICTION

Dust tumbles from the caved ceilings. Ivy crawls under the shattered window, and perched on a bedraggled sofa sits a captivating bull terrier by the name of Claire. Her owner, Alice van Kempen, is a Dutch photographer with an enthusiasm for urban exploration, also known as Urbex. With Claire in tow, van Kempen discovers abandoned, eerie spaces, reclaimed by nature, from all over the world from Germany to Portugal to France. The photographer likes to maintain some light amidst the shadows, and it’s compiled with humour and heart into this awe-worthy book.

CELEBRATING FIVE YEARS

A heartfelt thank you to all the photographers, artists, illustrators, and writers who trusted us, dived in, and brought us delight, grace, excitement, courage, wilderness, and wonder over the last five years. Their work not only reflects the bonds we share with our animal companions, it also celebrates their spirit.

None of this would be possible without our four-legged counterparts who sprinkle magic dust time and time again, and our readers, who embraced this kooky idea, rallied around us, and made this world theirs too. With friends like these, who needs nine lives?

THE WRONG END OF THE STICK

Grippingly cringeworthy in places and charmingly endearing throughout, The Wrong End of the Stick is a dark comedy by Terri Matthews. Malcolm’s humdrum life is interrupted by an identity crisis, leading him down a bizarre and beautiful tale of things left unsaid, leg-humping, and plenty of awkward staring. Set against a live-action background, but with very human animated characters, Matthews manages to expertly play with humour and heart, touching on carnal urges, communication and open-mindedness.
