Description

To Robert Bringhurst, typographer, poet and writer, the presence of books and the story of books in Canada are preludes to understanding our culture. In The Surface of Meaning, he takes us on another of his walking tours, this time through the bramble of English and French-Canadian books and book design, from the early 19th century to the present day. Along the way, he discovers a genuine image trove of identity, culture and history.
