Issue #06 - Animals
Summer 2011
Animals are disappearing from our little planet at an alarming rate. Every 20 minutes a species of animal or plant vanishes forever. Humans are largely to blame for an accelerated extinction of these creatures and their habitat. In this issue of Kult, we celebrate animals and the lives they lead. In an age of genetic engineering and designer pets, we want to create a stronger bond between man and animal by increasing understanding. This issue is full of facts about animals, visualized by some of the most exciting artists working around the world today.
