The cover features Xander, a beautiful Stabyhoun. The Stabyhoun is a rare and companionable Dutch breed. In this issue we talk about the breed along with Friesland, the natural region it hails from. We also explore the concept of companionship through a mix of personal narratives, interviews and discussions with people whose dogs are an important part of their lives and creative process. We chatted with US Photographer Amy Lombard, Colombian dog altruistic Jimena Hoyos and English actor Frank Windsor. Issue 1 also features a photo-essay by photographer Christopher Nunn and an illustration-essay inspired by the original dog’s jobs by Jenny Tang.
