Cool! Prints That Commemorate Defining Moments in Canadian Music History

At the opening reception for the 46th Annual Juno Awards, Music Canada revealed a four-part installation called Anthology: Defining Moments in Canadian Music, a visual presentation of–well, important Canadian music landmarks. Designed by Ben Purkiss around facts collected by music journalist Larry LeBlanc, it’s one the nicest summaries of the history of our music I’ve ever seen.

When you line them all up connecting the line, you end up with a continuous history of Canadian since 1969. I wonder if Music Canada is going to make this available to fans?

  • Cool, but fairly useless since the text is so small (even after clicking on the enlargement on their website) that I can’t even read it.

    Do you know if there is a higher-res version somewhere Alan?
