The Paper Hound
On my way back from North Van I stopped at the Paper Hound to see what's new in used books. Rod was at the desk, which is always a pleasure because I have known Rod a long time and it's good to catch up.
Atop a cabinet across from the desk stood a number of books. I picked up one of them, only to take note of its holder.
"It's a coat hanger," I said to the book holder.
"Kim made those," said Rod. "She made one, we liked it, now she can't stop."
I asked if I could take its picture. Rod said he didn't think Kim would mind.
"It looks like a hound," I said. "It looks like a hound as if van Tee had drawn it."
