This month however we are featuring a book that has just been released by Ian Brodie and Paul MacKinnon and is available for sale in the CBU Art Gallery.
Old Trout Funnies: The Comic Origins of the Cape Breton Liberation Army is a collaborative work between Ian Brodie, the Associate Professor of Folklore at Cape Breton University, and Paul “Moose” MacKinnon, a native of Sydney Mines, Cape Breton, who was the initial creator of Old Trout Funnies. In this book Brodie “explores the themes and the legacy of Old Trout Funnies, providing the cultural and historical context for a project that was intensely esoteric and in-the-moment”. Included in this work are Old Trout Funnies Issues 1-3, rare unpublished editions, various CBLA calendars, and context and interpretive writing by Brodie.
The official book launch in the CBU Art Gallery is to be announced.
In the mean time be sure to check out the current exhibition in the Gallery surrounding these works which includes archival material from the Beaton Institute and pick up your copy of Old Trout Funnies: The Comic Origins of the Cape Breton Liberation Army!
