CanadaInk Magazine was a monthly bulletin published by the Canada Printing Ink Company, 15 Dundas Street in Toronto, and its intent was to "pass along items of interest to users of ink". This is a complete collection of 90 issues bound into a dark blue hardcover book with gilt lettering on spine. It is also SIGNED BY EDITOR Charles Richard Conquergood, president of the Empire Club between 1944 - 1945 and who was very active in the Toronto Printing Industry for decades. Beautifully illustrated (as one might imagine) with great vintage advertisements, all relating to the printing industry. Great articles on colours, inks, technical advise, aesthetics and much more. A truly unique item, doubtful that it will ever be found again
