Maira Kalman's Beloved Dog

On October 27th, illustrator Maira Kalman appeared at Barnes & Noble on the Upper West Side. She spoke of her mother, of her dog Pete who inspired the new book Beloved Dog, and of how she came to acquire Toscanini's pants. Afterwards there was a book signing in which she included a small drawing of a dog.

Arf! There's also more here about dogs.

Finally, this blog boasts an extensive virtual collection of signed books with original drawings. Perhaps you'd care to add one to the archive?
