Originally published by Douglas & McIntyre and the Art Gallery of Ontario to accompany a major exhibition of Blackwood's work in 2012, Black Ice is now being made available once again, after having sold out less than a year following its first publication.Canadian artist David Blackwood has been telling stories about Newfoundland in the form of epic visual narratives for the past 30 years. His stories draw on childhood memories, dreams, superstitions, the oral tradition, and the political realities of the community on Bonavista Bay, where he was born and raised. His collection of works has created an iconography of Newfoudnland that is as universal as it is personal, as mythic as it is rooted in reality, and as timeless as it is linked to specific events.This comprehensive and sumptuously illustrated retrospective features over 70 prints. The book also features essays by Blackwood himself, Michael Crummey, Sean Cadigan, and Katherarine Lochnan as well as an essay on the environment by Martin Feely and Derek Wilton and another on mumming by Caoimhe Ni Shuilleabhain.This new edition of Black Ice is co-published with the Art Gallery of Ontario and Douglas & McIntyre. Customers should note that Goose Lane's territory includes Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador as well as Chapters/Indigo nationwide. Customers in other parts of Canada may obtain copies from Douglas & McIntyre and its distributor.
