THOREAU MacDONALD. A Catalogue of Design and Illustration.
Edition: First Edition
University of Toronto Press, 1973. Tan cloth. (xii), (192) pp. Well illustrated in black & white. Fine in fine jacket. Long essay and bibliography, with many reproductions. Thoreau MacDonald was the son of J.E.H. MacDonald (Group of Seven). He sometimes worked jointly with his father on book design and illustration. Thoreau usually worked in pen and ink. His drawings and illustrations are superb - my own favourite Canadian book illustrator of any period. He deserves greater recognition outside of Canada, though he has not entirely been ignored by the rest of the world. Note: 1.5 kg parcel; Quarto 0802019595
