Klee Wyck by Emily Carr( Book )

63 editions published between 1941 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Douglas & McIntyre is proud to announce definitive, completely redesigned editions of Emily Carr's seven enduring classic books. These are beautifully crafted keepsake editions of the literary world of Emily Carr, each with an introduction by a distinguished Canadian writer or authority on Emily Carr and her work. Emily Carr's first book, published in 1941, was titled Klee Wyck ("Laughing One"), in honour of the name that the Native people of the west coast gave to her. This collection of twenty-one word sketches about Native people describes her visits and travels as she painted their totem poles and villages. Vital and direct, aware and poignant, it is as well regarded today as when it was first published in 1941 to instant and wide acclaim, winning the Governor General's Award for Non-fiction. In print ever since, it has been read and loved by several generations of Canadians, and has also been translated into French and Japanese. Kathryn Bridge, who, as an archivist, has long been well acquainted with the work of Emily Carr, has written an absorbing introduction that places Klee Wyck and Emily Carr in historical and literary context and provides interesting new information
Unsettling encounters : First Nations imagery in the art of Emily Carr by Gerta Moray( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unsettling Encounters radically re-examines Emily Carr's achievement in representing Native life on the Northwest Coast in her painting and writing. By reconstructing a neglected body of Carr's work that was central in shaping her vision and career, it makes possible a new assessment of her significance as a leading figure in early-twentieth-century North American modernism."--Jacket

Wild flowers by Emily Carr( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and Russian and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this collection, Emily Carr celebrates wild flowers and shrubs. She wrote these 21 vignettes and short stories later in life, and they rekindled in her strong childhood memories of springtime flowers and blossoms. To Emily Carr, "buttercup yellow" declares "Spring is here!", Mock-orange blossoms are every bit as good as the real ones, Lady's-slipper has a "dainty jauntiness that dances out of leaf mould", and "Trillium is opulent, each flower a queen in her own right"." "Wild Flowers is illustrated with finely-detailed watercolours of wild plants by Emily Woods, one of Carr's childhood drawing teachers in Victoria." "Archivist and historian Kathryn Bridge introduces this previously unpublished manuscript and then concludes with a short essay on how Emily Carr wrote Wild Flowers, giving it context within the body of her published writings."--Jacket

An account of the artist's stay in a sanitorium
The House of All Sorts by Emily Carr( Book )

19 editions published between 1944 and 2009 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emily Carr was primarily a painter, but she first gained recognition as an author for her seven books about her journeys to remote Native communities and stories about life as an artist, as a small child in Victoria at the turn of the last century-and as a reluctant landlady. Before winning recognition for her painting and writing, Carr built a small apartment building with four suites (she lived in one of them) that she hoped would earn her a living. But things turned out worse than expected, and in her forties, the gifted artist found herself shoveling coal and cleaning up after people for 23 years. The House of All Sorts is a collection of 41 stories of those hard-working days and the parade of tenants- young couples, widows, sad bachelors and rent evaders-all the tears and travails of being a landlady confronted with the startling foibles of humanity. Carr is at her most acerbic and rueful, but filled with energy and inextinguishable hope. Carr's writing is vital and direct, aware and poignant, and as well regarded today as when The House of All Sorts was first published in 1944 to critical and popular acclaim. The book has been in print ever since

Her groundbreaking 1913 "Lecture on Totems", her first recorded writing on Native art and people, is also included, as are some of her most fascinating letters to friends and colleagues

The book of Small by Emily Carr( Book )

21 editions published between 1942 and 2011 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The legendary Emily Carr was primarily a painter, but she first gained recognition as an author. She wrote seven popular, critically acclaimed books about her journeys to remote Native communities and about her life as an artist-as well as her life as a small child in Victoria at the turn of the last century. The Book of Small is a collection of 36 short stories about a childhood in a town that still had vestiges of its pioneer past. With an uncanny skill at bringing people to life, Emily Carr tells stories about her family, neighbours, friends and strangers-who run the gamut from genteel people in high society to disreputable frequenters of saloons-as well as an array of beloved pets. All are observed through the sharp eyes and ears of a young, ever-curious and irrepressible girl, and Carr's writing is a disarming combination of charm and devastating frankness. Carr's writing is vital and direct, aware and poignant, and as well regarded today as when she was first published to both critical and popular acclaim. The Book of Small has been in print ever since its publication in 1942, and, like Klee Wyck, has been read and loved by a couple of generations
