Chock-full of for-the-ages art, Sculpture in Canada: A History (Douglas & McIntyre) chronicles the country’s past through sculpture—from a hand-chipped bone shard that dates back to 13,000 BCE, to pieces created through modern-day 3D modelling. History buffs and art enthusiasts alike will appreciate the eye-catching colour photos and Dr. Maria Tippett’s encyclopedic knowledge of art, and how the economy and culture of the nation influenced the works. In short: prepare to be fascinated. Find it at local bookstores.
