It is our great pleasure to announce the appearance of David Collier (“He is truly a national treasure.” — Geist) at this year’s Toronto Comic Art Festival. Instead of a standard artist appearance at the Conundrum Press table we are planning a Collier Corner. And in this corner Collier will be signing Hamilton Illustrated recently published by Wolsak & Wynn and nominated for a Doug Wright Award. Also available for purchase and signing will be his titles from Conundrum Press. Guest star Serena McCarroll will also be signing her hardcover art book All Citizens, to which Collier contributed significantly. So come by and say hello, pose for a sketch, buy a book, or just shake hands with David Collier.
Hamilton Illustrated (Wolsak & Wynn)
David Collier has long been a fixture in Hamilton, whether wandering through the streets, paddling though Hamilton harbour or biking through the city only to stop suddenly to pull out a sharp pencil and a well-worn sketchbook. His artist’s eye is drawn to the beauty of the city and to the warmth of the people who live here. In Hamilton Illustrated Collier shows the Hamilton he knows and loves. The reader can’t help but love it too. ISBN 978-1-894987-70-7, 120 pages, $19

Introduction by Jeet Heer
All Citizens by Serena McCarroll (Conundrum):
The heart of the All Citizens project was the store itself: a meeting place, shop, cultural centre, concept, music venue and all things in between. It was the ultimate culmination of a DIY aesthetic forged onto a rural landscape.
