Design in Canada e-book

The award-winning book, Design in Canada by Cora Golden and Rachel Gotlieb, is now available as an e-book through Golden’s new enterprise, Golden e-books.com. Originally published in 2001 by Knopf Canada, the hardcover and softcover versions of the book quickly sold out and became sought-after collector’s editions.

Design in Canada is a 50-year retrospective (1950 to 2000) of Canadian-designed objects for the home (furniture, lighting, textiles, ceramics, glass, and more) and is a must for any would-be collector of Canuck design. Sample text and images are available for review through iTunes; originally priced at $75 for the hardcover edition, the e-book retails for $19.99.

    Thanks Chris! About 10 years ago, I saw a copy of this book. I’d since forgotten the title/authors and I’ve been searching for it as I recall that my parents’ dining table, which I now have, is featured in the book. I’m about to get my e-copy.

    This book is a great resource for learning about Canadian design even if you don’t collect it. It’s nice to see the book available at such an accessible price, thanks for posting. Your local library may also have a copy – I believe that’s where I first saw it.

    It’s pretty easy to find used copies on-line, of the paperback version, for no more than a few bucks.

  5. Cora Says:

    Hi Gus, it’s also pretty easy to see used copies online costing over $100. More typically, softcovers typically sell in the $15 to $25 range and hardcovers in the $35 to $50 range (none of which goes to the authors). Just FYI, authors in Canada creating content based on ‘original research’ do it as a ‘labour of love’. That is, they don’t make any money. Cora
