Just like keeping a photo of your beloved in a locket, Bettina Von Zwehl’s miniature dog portraits are tiny treasures. With each image measuring a mere seven to eight centimetres in diameter, Von Zwehl’s portraits sit within a wider, matte black frame, drawing the gaze inwards and almost emulating the feeling of peering through a keyhole at the subject. The Munich-born artist’s work has recently appeared in the Winter Antiques Show in New York, Photo London, and Masterpiece London.
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.
