Cats have something of a monopoly (a meow-opoly? No…) when it comes to the online realm and last year they muscled their way into print as well with the publication of the inaugural Cat People magazine. Everyone knows that dogs tend to follow cats so it’s no great surprise that not to be outdone by their feline counterparts, our canine chums now boast their own magazine as well.
Popular online site Four & Sons has moved into print (following last year’s experiment with a newspaper and the first issue includes contributions from the likes of Mike Mills, Martin Usborne, Dave Eggers, Nathaniel Russell and Will Robson-Scott among others and creative director Marta Roca describes the new titles as “the publication where dogs and culture collide.”
She goes on: “Chronicling the work of interesting people and their interesting dogs, Four&Sons is a bi-annual trip through the worlds of art, photography, music, literature—even maths—as inspired by man’s best friend.
“Reflecting the ideas, projects and interests of our human readers we’re definitely not a pet magazine. Instead, Four&Sons delves into creative lives lived alongside dogs.”
It’s the same approach used to such impressive effect by titles like The Gourmand (exploring interesting people and stories via food) and later issues of Huck (via surfing and skateboarding) and Four & Sons looks like it could be similarly engaging. If I had a tail, it would so be wagging right now…
