About this title

Synopsis:

A fascinating array of Mounties, maple leaves and beavers.

This beautifully illustrated large-format pictorial features perhaps the most amazing collection ever assembled of objects depicting Canada's three most enduring national symbols: the Mountie, the maple leaf and the beaver. Each is iconic, communicating "Canada" to people everywhere. Included are items as diverse as:

- A centuries-old fishing spear and a modern goalie's mask
- Vintage toys and tacky taxidermy
- War medals and Easter eggs
- Comic books, quilts and museum artifacts.

The uniquely Canadian products are accompanied by foreign manufactured tourist souvenirs. High art meets low kitsch. These are the things that define a nation beyond all politics, and this remarkable collection celebrates them all. It will be appreciated by collectors, antique hunters and lovers of Canadiana.

Donna and Nigel Hutchins provide the reader with both a feast of visual images and a comprehensive history of the symbols and their use in identifying Canada to Canadians and to the world.
