While Vancouver is known for its beautiful scenery, Hollywood director Guillermo del Toro has proclaimed his love for another gem in the city.

Toro — who is known for directing Academy Award-winning films Pan’s Labyrinth and Toronto-shot, The Shape of Water — took to Twitter to give a shout out to MacLeod’s Books on West Pender.

“Had a moment free in Vancouver. Spent it in heaven at McLeod’s bookstore in 455 Pender. Found true treasures…” wrote Toro.

Toro also said he “bought a box of books -including a ghost anthology illustrated by Lynd Ward.”

Keep an eye out for Toro around town — he’ll most likely have a book from Mcleod’s in hand.
