Thor Hansen: Crafting a Canadian Style

Rachel Gotlieb

Original Price: 


A long overdue review of the work of Canadian textile designer Thor Hansen (1903-1974). Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, the Danish émigré was a popular artist, designer and tireless promoter of the craft movement in Canada. Incorporating the iconography of the Group of Seven and the teachings of William Morris, Hansen's printed textiles and decorative arts were displayed in many executive work environments as well as at public events such as Expo '67. Fifteen colour plates illustrate his original designs. Rachel Gotlieb is the author of Design in Canada (Key Porter, 2004)
