Last summer, I was contacted by Carol Elder, a photo researcher who was working on a book written by the current Governor General of Canada, his Excellency The Right Honourable David Johnston and Tom Jenkins. She was requesting my consent to publish a photo of my painting " Edward R. McDonald's Crossword Game'' for an article about Mr. McDonald's inclusion that is entitled, "Wood-tile Crossword". Just in time to celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday, "INGENIOUS" is a richly illustrated volume of brilliant Canadian innovations whose widespread adoption has made the world a better place. The book appeared in my mailbox today directly from the publisher, Signal- McClelland & Stewart / a division of Penguin Random House Company. I am very honoured to been asked to contribute to such a publication.
