Lisa Cinar’s work at ECIAD til July 28

Author and book designer Celia King has curated an exhibit of art books now on display in the Concourse Gallery of Emily Carr University (1399 Johnston St., Granville Island.) Among the popup books, sculptural books, fine press and more, you’ll find work by Lisa Cinar, whose book The Day It All Blew Away, featuring an odd-shaped protagonist called Mr. Tadaa, was shortlisted for the Christie Harris Illustrated Children’s Literature Prize. Says Cinar, “When I was in school I always found myself doing my classes and doodling on my books. The characters came from all these doodles, and it was natural for the characters to look like that.” The exhibition opens July 10 and runs daily from 10 am to 6 pm. www.eciad.ca
