Illustrator Faye Moorhouse, creator of giclée print One Hundred Hideous Hounds and zines An A–Z of Dogs and Pooing Dogs, turns her nimble brush and observational eye to another less-covered subject. Women and Their Dogs consists of nine paintings that portray the everyday life of the ordinary woman and her faithful friend.
Trips to the supermarket, picnics in the park, and bedtime all come to life in this handmade zine. Moorhouse’s whimsical style warps puddles of colour into endearing studies of people and their pets, highlighting the humorous and intimate relationship we share. Perhaps we see a little of ourselves in each picture—especially the cover, which features a woman on a bed laden with sleepy dogs.
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.
