The Last Bookstore is excited to have hiding border collie Momo and his human sidekick, Andrew Knapp, in store to talk about their adventures and sign books.
In the fall of 2012, photographer Andrew Knapp took his border collie, Momo, into the woods to play catch. Knapp grabbed a stick and gave it a throw, but Momo was not interested in retrieving it—he wanted to play a game of hide-and-seek. After a bit of searching, Knapp found Momo hidden behind some trees. The beauty of the scene inspired Knapp to pick up his camera and snap a few shots of Momo, which he began posting to Instagram with the #findmomo hashtag. Momo soon became an Internet sensation: his Instagram feed quickly gained more than 100,000 followers.
Find Momo: My Dog is Hiding in this Book. Can You Find Him? is Knapp’s collection of charming photography that invites readers to play hide-and-seek with this ever-cute, ever-patient, ever-eager border collie who is skilled at hiding in a variety of settings. With plenty of never-before-seen photos, readers will look for Momo in famous locales like Central Park in New York City and Millennium Park in Chicago, as well as in fields, snow banks, and toy stores.
Full of striking and unforgettable images, Find Momo is part art book and part “Where’s Waldo?” and it will challenge and inspire dog lovers, photography buffs, and curious readers of all ages.
