By Adrian Raeside Harbour Publishing 128 pages 978-1-55017-596-7 2012 $9.95
Adrian Raeside, following in the footsteps of the great Len Norris of the Vancouver Sun, is renowned for his topical editorial cartoons.
BC Ferries, long the bane of BC travelers, has provided enough material over the years for the full Raeside comic treatment in this compendium of 150 works issued by Harbour Publishing.
The book reveals one of the cartoonist’s proudest accomplishments, helping to get rid of the breakfast fare served onboard by the transportation behemoth.
This book makes the perfect gift or purchase for those familiar with ferries in British Columbia and makes a great read in a ferry lineup or at home. Congratulations to Harbour for bringing the cartoons of Mr Raeside to a wider audience.
