Late last year a used bookstore named The Book Zoo opened in my neighborhood. One day while passing the store, a book in the window display immediately caught my attention. It was Posters of the Canadian Pacific. I’m always on the lookout for poster books. After quick look through the book I was convinced that I had to add it to my library.
The Canadian Pacific Railway spanned North America from the Pacific to the Atlantic Oceans. Aside from its railway, the company operated cruise ships, wilderness resorts and an airline. Canadian Pacific produced more than 2,500 posters from the 1880s until the 1970s. The book presents a selection of 300 of the best of these images.
If you are an artist, art historian, or an aficionado of 20th Century poster art, Posters of the Canadian Pacific is a must have for your library. Authors Marc H. Choko and David L. Jones have done an outstanding job. The book may be purchased online at Amazon.com
