  • If you're coming down to Emily Carr this weekend, stop by the Granville Island Hotel and take in ReVision - the Art of Recycling which is on this Saturday and Sunday. Rachael Ashe has two of her altered books in this show, including this one.

  • We have added cover art to our library catalogue. When you search for the catalogue for books or DVDs you'll have a better idea of what you're going to the shelf to grab, or the cover might remind you that it's a book you've used before.

    This is a subscription service and some of the books and DVDs that we have might not have images. Unfortuantely our exhibition catalogues won't have cover art.
