Three Years of Buckrider Books

It has been three years since Wolsak & Wynn Publishers and I launched the Buckrider Books imprint. Since then, we have published 21 books of poetry and fiction together, and we're growing. Starting next season, we're expanding from three fiction titles per year to four, and we will maintain our poetry program of four titles per year, as well.

Our Toronto spring launch will be May 18 at the Steady Cafe and Bar, starting at 7pm.

Proposed art work: "Frame for Van Gogh's Sunflowers"

I want to make an art piece called "Frame for Van Gogh's Sunflowers." For this peice I will construct a large frame of hot pink vinyl, with polka dots and happy faces on it, at least 22 feet high by 17 feet wide, at the centre of which there will be a space cut out where one of Van Gogh's original sunflower paintings will be placed.

But where am I going to find 374 square feet of hot pink vinyl?
