Souvenir of Canada 2by Douglas Coupland
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
In this quirky photoessay by a Vancouver artist getting in touch with his Canadian identity, Coupland examines new images of "the sleepy little Dominion." He intersperses art that he created specifically for this sequel to the first Souvenir book (2002) with family mythology and philosophical/humorous riffs on customs, institutions, and landscapes unique to Canada. A two- headed goose graces the cover. Eh?

Douglas Coupland returns to reinventing Canada with additional proof that his bestseller Souvenir of Canada made clear: Canada is way more than slightly cool. Couplands net has a colorful, lively mix of cultural commentary and images that include a tour of Nanaimo bars; unforgettable railways photos; and a double-headed goose that symbolizes the countrys duality. In addition to his trademark visual revelations, Coupland here creates new works of art and design that further evoke the Canadian identity. Each of these objects mirrors his personal relationship to the Great White North in a way thats both local and universal.
