Spirit of the North: Summer 2010

I fairly flew out to the printer this morning to pick up my copies of Spirit of the North, Summer 2010 (I’m art director and designer). This issue is packed with all kinds of neat stories from all across country.

The theme of this issue is bears – not surprising, especially for those of us who live in BC and often see bears in our backyards in the summer. Well, I don’t (I live in Vancouver), but my friends who live in North Vancouver and West Vancouver do!

This beautiful cover image, and many of the photo gallery images were shot by Nova Scotia-based Thomas Kitchin and Victoria Hurst. They are so, so talented!
