Balmoral Hotel, Vancouver - screenprinted journal

About this Journal: The context of this composition could be making reference to a relationship. The hotel could be a rendez-vous…for a new relationship, an affair? Or could be that was is being hinted at is that the life of this building is not over. No matter how many historical buildings get torn down in Vancouver, I will not be torn down yet.

The Balmoral Hotel is not a swanky place anymore, but it has a rich history as do many old buildings in the city. It is that history that I’d like to be more familiar with. We need to keep our old buildings so that the history of the city stays alive in our memories.

Journal Specs: 6 x 9 inches ECO perfect-bound notebook with 72 sheets.  13 pt soft cover and ivory lined sheets. Made in Canada from 100% recycled materials.

Availability: I am printing only a very limited edition — only 3 or 4 of each composition. The four journals above will be available at the One Of A Kind Show in Vancouver (Dec 8 – 12).
