PAN No.1 The Emperor's New Clothes
"Pan & The Dream is more than a magazine, it's like a piece of performance art." - Steve Heller (Stack Award Judge and writer for the Visuals column for the New York Times Book Review).

There are only 1000 copies worldwide—each one numbered 1 to 1000 - only a few copies left.
Sensual and elegant, Pan & The Dream’s first volume concerns itself with the naked form.
It is not nudity in and of itself that is interesting, but rather the context and the message which the image carries. Each artist portrays the nude differently, however, they all respond to the question of nudity in art and its suppression in the mediatized world.
The issue weds smart text, brilliant design and arresting imagery in a coming together of new and archival work from esteemed artists and young creatives alike. A statement defying the current wave of commercial puritanism and the mishandling of censorship in social media.
Whether the body is a dreamy representation or a graphic photograph, these images are not always what they appear to be at first glance.
With a foreword by Nick Knight and perspectives from over 60 artists, it is evident that there is no definitive way to interpret a nude.
