Books I've picked up recently

Friday, 13 September 2013

Being a life-long lover of books, I can't help but look for books at thrift stores and estate sales.
Here are two of the coolest I've picked up recently.
ArtsCanada's Annual Visual Arts Portfolio 1967 which contains several booklets, here are my favourites:

 Les Levine Twenty-Four Drawings

Textile art by Halifax's Charlotte Lindgren 

Photographs of Saint John (New Brunswick) by Ian MacEachern 

John Andrews designed Scarborough College

 White sculpture on the right - Hugh A. Leroy Four Element Column 

How to Wrap Five Eggs / Japanese Design in Traditional Packaging  by Hideyuki Oka with a foreword by George Nelson
This is the prized 1st edition, here are some photos from the book, for sale here.

And I leave you with this image of Arthur Handy's sculpture Aphrodite Yawns from the 1967 exhibition of contemporary Canadian sculpture, installed in Toronto's Nathan Phillips Square.

Happy Friday!
