VAN SANDWYK-1

From Canadian Content. By Charles van Sandwyk (with an introduction by Waisiki Doughty). 2009.

Today’s post is a bit of a detour from the usual for VAIW.

I was reminded today, by a couple of events, of these wonderful illustrations. I was engaged this morning in the happy task of re-arranging the volumes in our bookcases and in so doing, I re-discovered the monograph (Canadian Content by Charles van Sandwyk) from which these two scans were made. Second, the book was a gift from my wife and me to ourselves on the occasion of an anniversary (the number of which neither of us can recall). It will be our Silver Wedding Anniversary in a couple days.

For more about van Sandwyk and his illustrations, see this site.

Here is a link to Van Sandwyck reading from the volume from which these pieces were scanned.
