Description

For twenty-five years Bruce MacKinnon has delighted and amused readers of Nova Scotia's daily newspaper, and collected here in Penetration are the best cartoons of the past eight years as well as Bruce's own retrospective covering his years as an editorial cartoonist. This twenty-fifth anniversary collection presents a brief history of Bruce's work, his own hilarious memories, unforgettable controversies, and the process behind creating insightful-and occasionally poignant-cartoons of the most significant issues of the day. Includes a foreword from CBC newsman and MacKinnon admirer Peter Mansbridge.

Co-published with the Chronicle Herald.

About the Authors
Bruce MacKinnon (b. Antigonish, Nova Scotia) has been described as "among the new breed of distinguished artists" in editorial cartooning, a genre that goes back centuries. Since 1985, he has worked for the Halifax Chronicle-Herald and his work there has been widely recognized locally, nationally, and internationally. In 2011, he was made a member of the Order of Nova Scotia. In 2013, he was the recipient of an honorary doctorate from NSCAD University and the Friend of StFX Award from St. Francis Xavier University. Upon being appointed to the Order of Canada in 2016, a news release from the Governor General praised MacKinnon for being "fearless, thoughtful and provocative" and "one of Canada's most talented and respected editorial cartoonists."
