Maddie stands on things, signs books and greet fans along with her human, Theron Humphrey.
Photographer Theron Humphrey has done what many of us only dream of doing. Following a breakup and the loss of his grandfather, he quit his lucrative day job and rescued an adorable dog on Petfinder. Humphrey soon resolved to hit the road with his new best friend, documenting their adventures in Maddie on Things: A Super Serious Project about Dogs and Physics from Chronicle Books, which has more than a hundred fascinating photos of Humphrey’s beloved Coonhound, Maddie. From mailboxes and tree stumps to tractors and fences, it seems Maddie will climb anything if it only means making her owner happy. (And of course, let’s not forget the treats.) Whether it’s an old satellite dish, a rusted gas pump, or an oversized green dinosaur, Maddie’s graceful nature and rare patience make her the ideal subject in this unique photo series that's equal parts old-fashioned American travelogue and quirky coffee-table tome. Meet Maddie and her master when the pair makes a pit stop at Skylight Books as part of the Maddie Book Tour.
