Designed by Seth and with a comprehensive biographical essay by Wright scholar Brad Mackay, this book is probably the most significant historic comics project to come out of Canada this century. A beautiful book, revealing the early career and artistic maturity of Canada's most widely-read cartoonist in the post World-War II years. Plus, this thing is about the size of a monument --and there's going to be two of them! Just like the 10 Commandments!

The first of a historic two-volume set, Doug Wright: Canada's Master Cartoonist presents the first-ever comprehensive look at the life and career of one of the most-read and best-loved cartoonists of the 1960s. Compiled in cooperation with Wright's family, it draws from thousands of pieces of art, pictures, letters, and the artist's own journals, to provide a fully rounded view of Doug Wright, both as a cartoonist and as an individual.
