CanadaBook - 2003
In-depth articles by leading Canadians and glorious color photography by Malak and more capture Canada in the 21st century, in an impressive new book from Carol-Canada launching in September 2003. The book is endorsed by United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan, whose message opens the book, followed by one from Prime Minister Jean Chretien Canada-The New Millennium Series highlights our nation's accomplishments through highly-informative original articles by leading Canadians. Among them are historian Desmond Morton's engrossing overview on Canadian history, author and poet Rosemary Sullivan's survey of Art and Literature, the Hon, Allan Rock on Industry, Bank of Canada Governor David Dodge's take on The Economy, and regional dignitaries who passionately depict the vitality of their provinces and territories. The volume also reprints fine examples of writing on Canada - among them astronaut Roberta Bondar's poetic paean to nature, and writer Peter C. Newman on the importance of Canada's waterways. Captivating wildlife close-ups, breath-taking aerial shots and scenes of northern natural beauty, beguilingly candid images of children from Canada's many cultures, Canadian art, and many moments from across the country and through the seasons fill the book with nearly 400 spectacular images. Most are by the great landscape photographer Malak Karsh, who served as photo editor, in his last major project before his death. Over 100 of Malak's photographs are featured.
