Bright, unrread softcover with no remainder marks. Like new, with no defects. 128 pages.

George Bowering and Greg Curnoe became friends in London, Ontario, in 1966. Bowering was a 30-year-old poet and university student and Curnoe was a 29-year-old painter who had dropped out of art school in Toronto to return to his place of birth. Their art was in its youth, their eyes and ears were wide open and their stomachs could withstand pots and pots of strong, black coffee. For 26 years they grew up parallel, inside each other’s work. Greg Curnoe was killed on his bicycle late in 1992, struck down in the middle of his bright career.

Arctic Spectacles: The Frozen North in Visual Culture, 1818-1875, Potter, Russell A.
13 Potter, Russell A. Arctic Spectacles: The Frozen North in Visual Culture, 1818-1875
University of Washington Press 2007 0295986808 / 9780295986807 Paperback As New 
Bright, fresh softcover. No remainder marks; no flaws.

From the publisher's description: This book "illuminates the nineteenth-century fascination with visual representations of the Arctic, weaving together a narrative of the major Arctic expeditions with an account of their public reception through art and mass media. In a century that saw every corner of the globe slowly open to the examining eye of Western science, it was the Arctic - remote, mysterious, untamable - that most captured the imagination of artists and the public alike. Its impact could be seen in a range of visual media from fine art to panoramas, engravings, magic lantern slides, and photographs, as well as hybrid forms of entertainment in which Inuit were "exhibited" alongside a cabinet of assorted Arctic curiosities while Western gentlemen looked on."
