2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Separated from its origins in the Old World, Eastern Christian iconography in Canada has come to enjoy a popular following from coast to coast." "The present volume documents this living tradition from a variety of perspectives to offer the first national survey of its kind." "Here folklorists join with art historians, anthropologists, a scientist, a theologian, enthusiasts and iconographers to underscore the richness of a phenomenon that continues to captivate large segments of the country's population."--Jacket

Canadian craft and museum practice, 1900-1950 by Sandra Flood( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sandra Flood overturns the current myth that nothing happened in the Canadian craft scene until the late 1960s. This account presents the Canadian context, and reviews the tone and focus of contemporaneous writing about craft before exploring the diversity of craftmakers, craft production, crafts organizations, craft education, and government involvement. The history of museums and their lack of response to this major component of Canadian culture combined with the fate of various craft collections raise important, ongoing questions."--BOOK JACKET
Icelandic-Canadian popular verse by Magnús Einarsson( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The third book in a series on Icelandic-Canadian folk literature, Icelandic-Canadian Popular Verse features some 274 verses and poems (originals and translations) that reflect Icelandic immigrant life on the Prairies." "Composed in Canada, these verses and poems convey the thoughts and experiences of Icelandic immigrants (who began arriving in Canada in the early 1870s) and their descendants. Occasional verses have been a part of Icelandic written and oral tradition for centuries. They can be used in any number of ways to express love, philosophy of life, censure, or simply delight in the joys of daily living. As such, these verses are a uniquely revealing source of information about the emotional and intellectual life of Icelandic immigrants in Canada." "In addition, the book includes 20 photographs, an index of loanwords and phrases, and an index to poets' and storytellers' repertoires, as well as biographical information."--Jacket

Common ground : contemporary craft, architecture and the decorative arts by Gloria Hickey( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of 16 essays reveals provocative common ground between contemporary craft, architecture and decorative arts. The chief feature of the common ground is the integration of designing and making. Long considered the birthright of craftspeople, it is now the focus of contemporary architectural analysis. Scholars, architects and craftspeople - inspired by the historical precedent of the Bauhaus and architectural theorists such as Gottfried Semper - probe the contemporary relevance of the relationship between the design process, building or making methods and materials."--BOOK JACKET. "This volume includes essays by museum and gallery professionals that trace the historical precedents of their craft collections, the patrons who shaped them, and the current direction of institutional policies regarding the collecting and exhibiting of craft. Also included is a photo essay documenting the integration of craft and architecture in a case study of the Fuji Pavilion in the Montreal Botanical Garden."--BOOK JACKET
