While this school of penguins elegantly dives into the icewater, with VERY 17 we are launching head first into new dimensions. verymagazine.org brings you a new digital version of VERY with the exciting new medium of film. At the same time we extended the print magazine – with our first prefect-boud edition: more content, more VERY!

It is a particular pleasure to present you 'Wonder World Fur for WWF', a new sustainable collection in natural non fur, produced locally and sustainably in Europe with all benefits going to WWF France.

I am dedicating this issue to Gigi Giannuzzi. To our shock, sadness and disbelief he left us very prematurely on christmas eve. He lives on through the legend he created, Trolley Books and TJ Boulting.
