Happy onslaught of holiday CHeer, CH-ers!

Regardless of what you'll be celebrating this month — CHristmas, Festivus, Hanukkah, Kwaanza, time off from work, Ricky Martin's birthday — there is one thing we all have in common: everyone is expected to spend money. So heck, we thought we'd get into the holiday $pirit with some pretty sweet holiday deals:

bpNichol bless us, every one!

Our warmest congratulations to Jocelyne Saucier and Rhonda Mullins: And the Birds Rained Down has been longlisted for the next installment of Canada Reads

For the month of December 2014, we're letting you pick 3 Exploded Views books for $30. 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, the current titles will appeal to your diverse and discerning cultural tastes.

The Exploded Views Commitment makes a great gift for a friend or loved one, but if you'd rather keep them all for yourself, we promise not to tell. 

 

Like a torrid love affair, reading a fantastic book of poetry can feel all too fleeting. Fortunately, nobody will judge you if you take home three books of poetry at once, like, say, Ken Babstock's On Malice (who doesn't like a hint of danger?), Jeramy Dodds's The Poetic Edda (troll fetish fulfillment) and Sarah Dowling's DOWN (for sonically dense poetry to cuddle with afterward). During December, you can choose any three books of Coach House poetry for only $40!

Now this is a threesome that we can get behind.

If you're not afraid of PayPal, and you want to buy someone you love books by proxy, this is the Coach House feature for you!

Sometimes buying a gift for a book lover can be a minefield. What if you misread his/her tastes? What if he/she hates that author?

This holiday season, take it easy and give the gift of Coach House to that book lover on your list: give a C.H.I.P. (Coach House Important Person) membership. It's like a Coach House subscription, but so much more. Details here!

 

 

 

Together at last! We're pairing acclaimed poet Lisa Robertson’s Cinema of the Present with a stunning Cinema poster set designed by Canadian artist duo Hadley+Maxwell, created in response to the long poem and Robertson's interrogation of the pronoun 'you.' 

Eight posters and one engrossing book of poetry for only $45 (that's a savings of over $20!). It’s time to lock this deal down.

We're pleased to share this spellbinding Janey's Arcadia film with you, directed by author Rachel Zolf.

Edited by Aleesa Cohene with sound design and composition by Radiodress, the film superimposes National Film Board scenes of colonial life with Rachel's reading of three of her poems, "Janey's Hospitality," "Janey Settler's Pastoral Oasis," and "Face to Face." A detailed description of the film follows:

Now available: our new catalogue, featuring nine titles taking flight Spring 2015, and cover art by Fiona Smyth.
