There are many ways to find a lost dog

We were preparing a Sunday barbecue a week after moving into our new home the night Fung Fung ran away. Our dogs used to run in and out of our old house without problems, so we were relaxed about leaving the front door open. But that was a mistake.

Posters, lobby cards - the pictures cinema owners stick in the lobby to promote their movies - and now-ancient cigarette cards are all traded and hoarded by eager collectors.

A poster boy for understanding?

If you were Chinese, would you be offended by a caricature of a Chinese man with exaggeratedly slanted eyes, a long pigtail and very yellow skin? Such a caricature does exist. It's in the form of a poster dating back to 1920, and it's now on exhibit in Hong Kong as part of a sale of vintage posters.

Q Many of my friends have Cultural Revolution-era posters, and everyone tells me they're good collectables because they're visually striking and not too expensive. But I think it's unnerving to have Mao staring down at me while I eat breakfast. Where can I find posters that are more modern and Hong Kong?
