355 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs, reproductions. "Crammed with colour and anecdote, yet meticulously researched and fact-filled, (this book) is accessible Canadian social history that traces the magazine industry from its boisterous pre-Confederation beginnings to the vibrant and influential medium that it is today. (E)xamines the emergence of a national consciousness whose concerns became issues for the now growing number of Canadian magazines. We follow these throught their heyday in the Thirties and Forties to their near demise in the TV-conscious Sixties. The political, social and technological events that influenced Canada, and the hard-driving publishers, writers and editors who stamped their publications with their own vision and personal style are chronicled." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket is price-clipped.
