A Guide To Contemporary Architecture In Montreal
Nancy Dunton and Helen Malkin

Douglas & McIntyre

Through the eyes of a good guide a cityscape can come alive. Elements of our urban environment that we might not notice in our daily routine suddenly have context, history, personality. Such is the effect of Nancy Dunton and Helen Malkin’s A Guide to Contemporary Architecture in Montreal. The perfect size and format to take along on a city safari, this book’s crisp colour photography and authoritative commentary make Montreal a living textbook of modern architecture. mRb

Ian McGillis writes about books and visual arts for the Montreal Gazette. He is the author of the bestselling novel A Tourist’s Guide to Glengarry, and is currently working on a memoir about life as an obsessive fan of soul, reggae, and hip-hop.
