Here's another beautiful new book, of an exhibit at the McCord Museum in Montreal, which holds the Allan Slaight Collection.

Hi John. This is a great book but has been available for a few months already. See the thread http://forums.geniimagazine.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=49717&p=336363&hilit=mccord#p336363 here for more info. Certainly a recommended buy, especially for the price currently on Amazon.

Yes, you're right, I should've looked first.

It's good enough that it should be brought up more than once.
