Souvenir of Canada
By

Rating
Though his bestselling novels are in print in some 30 countries around the world, Coupland's accomplishments as a visual artist are less well-known. This book, which features his evocative still lifes and found objects, speaks to this notable parallel career. Coupland writes about Canada in a way no one else has - with prescient observations, and the uncanny ability to explain a culture by sorting through its detritus. Featuring contemporary design and 50 colour photos, Souvenir of Canada is a smart and darkly whimsical gift book; its complex nostalgia will resonate with anyone who has traveled to, or lived in, Canada.

About the Author

Douglas Coupland was born on a Canadian NATO base in Baden-Sollingen, Germany, and raised in West Vancouver. Among his best-selling books are Generation X, Generation A, jPod, Polaroids from the Dead, Microserfs, Miss Wyoming and City of Glass, altogether in print in some 40 countries. Less well known is the fact that he is a graduate of the Emily Carr School of Art and Design in Vancouver and that his ongoing design experiments include everything from launching a line of furniture to Smirnoff vodka ads. He also exhibits his sculpture and furniture collections around the world.

Reviews

This may be the best work ever produced by Canada's greatest artist/writer. Mr. Coupland is the master of the apercu, but his art - in particular, the still lifes he has assembled here for his tribute to the Canada he grew up in - encompasses as much as his words." - Globe and Mail "The book is at once reminiscent of Coupland's early work, the author as adroit with a catchy moniker now as he was then, though the book is also something else: The author ... has matured, become tender, even." - National Post
