THE ART OF CLAIRTONE:  THE MAKING OF A DESIGN ICON 1958-1971., Munk, Nina and Gotlieb, Rachel.  Foreword by Samantha Sannella.
21 Munk, Nina and Gotlieb, Rachel. Foreword by Samantha Sannella. THE ART OF CLAIRTONE: THE MAKING OF A DESIGN ICON 1958-1971.
Toronto McClelland & Stewart / Design Exchange 2008 0771065078 / 9780771065071 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good 
171 pp, oblong (9" H x 10 1/4" D). "For a decade, in the 1960s, Clairtone Sound Corporation captured the spirit of the times: sophisticated, cosmopolitan, liberated. From its modern oiled-walnut and teak stereos to its minimalist logos and promotional materials, Clairtone produced a powerful and enduring body of design work. Founded in 1958 by two young Canadians, Peter Munk and David Gilmour, Clairtone quickly became known for its iconic designs and masterful advertising campaigns. Its acclaimed Project G stereo, with its space-age styling, epitomized the Swinging Sixties. Famously, Hugh Hefner owned a Project G. So did Frank Sinatra. Oscar Peterson affirmed that his music sounded as good on a G as it did live. In 1967, suggesting how deeply Clairtone's G series had come to be identified with popular culture, the G2 appeared in 'The Graduate' with Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft. With 250 illustrations, including previously unpublished drawings, rare film stills, confidential memoradums, and original photography, (this) is a candid and in-depth look at the company's skyrocketing success - and sensational collapse. Through the recollections of those who knew Claritone best, from its founders to its designers, engineers, and salesmen, and with comments from Karim Rashid, Douglas Coupland, Tyler Brule, and Bruce Mau, among others, this elegant book, published on the 50th anniversary of Clairtone's launch, celebrates an iconoclastic company that once seemed to represent the promise of Canada." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light rubbing, tiny scuff on front panel, soft wrinkling at top of rear flap and at top of front panel.

27 Santink, Joy L. TIMOTHY EATON AND THE RISE OF HIS DEPARTMENT STORE.
Toronto University of Toronto 1990 0802027202 / 9780802027207 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
319 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "In 1869, when Timothy Eaton opened his small dry goods store on Yonge Street in Toronto, the term 'department store' was unknown in North America and in Europe. By the 1890s the phrase had entered the language. In Canada, the biggest factor in that change was Eaton himself, an Irish immigrant with little formal education. Twenty years after it opened, his Toronto store was unquestionably the largest and most successful department store in Canada. (This is) a biography of Timothy Eaton which is at the same time a history of the first forty years of the Eaton store in Toronto and an account of the revolutionary changes in the way goods were sold during this period. There were enormous improvements in transportation, communication, and the mass production of goods. Urbanization grew at a tremendous rate; so did the population. This revolution imposed new demands on the retail industry, demands that many merchants at both the wholesale and retail levels chose to ignore. Timothy Eaton did not make that mistake. He used competitive and sometimes hostile markets as tools, rather than obstacles, in his search for sales." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at bottom of spine - minor elsewhere.

New York Grand Central 2015 1455578525 / 9781455578528 Hard Cover Very Good+ Near Fine 
317 pp, 9 1/2" H. "We are all aware of the power of money - how it influences our moods, compels us to take risks, and serves as the yardstick of success in societies around the world. Yet because we take the daily reality of money so completely for granted, we seldom question how and why it has come to play such a central role in our lives. (The author) casts aside our workaday assumptions about money and takes the reader on a global quest to uncover a deeper understanding of the relationship between money and humankind. More than a mere history of its subject, this riveting book probes the conceptual origins and evolution of money by examining it through the multiple lenses of disciplines as varied as biology, psychology, anthropology, and theology. 'Coined' is not only a profoundly informative discussion of the concept of money, but it is also an endlessly fascinating and entertaining take on the nature of humanity and the inner workings of the mind." Very light wrinkle at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very minor wrinkle at top of rear hinge.

"Nobody, least of all the McCain brothers, imagined that the little frozen foods plant they opened in 1957 would, before the century was over, make Florenceville into the French fry capital of the world. Wallace and Harrison McCain worked hard and played hard and turned their family's name into the most famous Canadian brand in the world. Because they knew people were their most important asset, they hired and trained enthusiastic, independent thinkers to help them build McCain Foods into a global powerhouse in the frozen food industry. In doing so, they benefited not just themselves but thousands of employees all over the world as well as the millions of consumers who enjoy the convenience and nutritional benefits of McCain products. It's an amazing Canadian success story. How did they do it? That's what this book is about."
