A smartly packaged, affordably priced collection of the works of a Canadian icon.

Nearly seventy years after her death, Emily Carr's works continue to capture the grandeur of British Columbia's landscape and define our vision of the nation. The approximately one hundred works reproduced in this collection showcase the breadth of Carr's career, from early watercolours in Skidegate and Alert Bay on the northwest coast to charcoal sketches in mid-career to the stunning oils of trees, ravens, and mountains that characterized her later career.

Beautifully designed, its small format and price ideal for giftbuyers and visitors to the province, this volume is a compendium of some of Carr's best and most memorable works.
