In April of 2012 what began as my attempt to get to know Canada’s architectural heritage turned into a four-year and ten-piece obsessively illustrated series of prints showing my adopted home city of Montreal, my old home town of Edmonton, and eight other Canadian cities during specific moments in their history. Montreal on the opening day of Expo ‘67? It’s there. Calgary on the opening day of the ‘88 Olympics? That too. Ottawa on VE day in 1945? Wouldn’t miss it for the world.
Each print comprises between 50 and 125 specific landmarks and buildings, as well as a small square in each print that presents its title and historical date. Find the full series arranged here alphabetically, including Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, Hamilton, Montreal, Ottawa, Ville de Québec, Toronto, Vancouver, and Winnipeg. Oh, and this frame will fit these prints handsomely if used without a mat.
Available at 12x12" or 24x24" on Epson Enhanced Matte 192 gsm paper printed with Epson UltraChrome XD2 archival ink. Sold in an open edition, unframed, signed and dated on reverse.
