Our devotion to our dogs never falters, especially when they are old and grey. At these times, our homes become an accumulation of precious years spent together, housing worn-out couches, pillows with dog-shaped grooves and blankets chewed to tatters. Grey hairs twang from eyebrows, beards grow rougher, and flecks of white dapple coats. Maria Spann’s humble shots of old dogs sprawled on sofas and curled in beds may not be “show-home” beautiful, but they are an honest reflection of the intimate spaces we share with our beloved pets.
We are thrilled to introduce Dog-Friendly, a collection of city guides for dog-loving people, created together with our long-time contributor, photographer Winnie Au, and fellow enthusiasts, indie publisher Hoxton Mini Press. Available for purchase here.

Have you ever imagined Amy Winehouse or Nick Cave as a Chihuahua, Neil Young as a Vizsla, or PJ Harvey as an Afghan hound? That’s exactly what San Francisco-based artist Michael Gillette has done through his unique illustration project, blending beloved, iconic music legends, both past and present, with their dog counterparts. Pack of Dogs, our first foray into book publishing, is a celebration of pup and pop culture for music and dog lovers alike.
