Together at last! This December, we're pairing acclaimed poet Lisa Robertson’s Cinema of the Present with this stunning Cinema poster set designed by Canadian artist duo Hadley+Maxwell, created in response to Lisa's book. Hadley+Maxwell drew aesthetic inspiration for the portfolio from the political posters created by the Atelier Populaire for the May ’68 Paris uprising.

Exploded Views Commitment


Our Exploded Views series, now in its second year, features provocative literary reportage by some of North America’s most lyrical journalists and critics. The current titles in the series appeal to diverse and discerning cultural tastes, whether you want to take a closer look at the world of comics or a culture consumed by Eggs Benedict, reflect on Teenage Head's quest for punk rock success or the too-short life of Toronto artist and civic hero Will Munro, or consider the curation craze or modern spectres of the Panopticon.

$65.00 CAD
