This minimalist beauty was the first Department of Agriculture booklet cover I came across, and I'd like to thank Blair Thompson's incredible Canadamodern.org website for making that fateful introduction. In some ways it's cutting edge; its aesthetic is time zones ahead of previous egg publications from 1947 and 1961. My suspicion is that its (uncredited and anonymous) circle-loving federal civil servant designer had been designing ag covers since the previous year, based on a few typographic and geometric clues. See 1972's Production Latiere au Canada, Tuberous Begonias, Ticks, and The Saddle Horse for other examples of what I assume to be their excellent work. 

A booklet cover reproduction available at 12x18" or 24x36" on Epson Enhanced Matte 192 gsm paper printed with Epson UltraChrome XD2 archival ink. Sold in an open edition, unframed. The Canada Department of Agriculture wordmark on this cover has been replaced with the words ”National Farming Forum” due to Section 9 of the Canadian Trademarks Act.
