|A Review of: Posters of The Canadian Pacific
by Greg Gatenby
History buffs and art lovers will relish Posters of the Canadian
Pacific. Authors Marc Choko and David Jones give a brief and
serviceable history of CP and its marketing via the coloured print.
But the 300 posters themselves are the glory of the book, most
reproduced in colour and many given an entire page in this oversized
tome. It is exhilarating to see in these images from a century or
so ago-the shameless pride in Canada as a new country full of
splendour and beauty-and worth remembering that, for those millions
abroad, who never came here, perceptions of our country were shaped
by these virile advertising vehicles.
