MESSAGE TO BRITISH HOUSEWIVES

By The

HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR CANADA Canada House, London, S.W. 1

THIS little book contains recipes for a number of delectable dishes that can be prepared easily and quickly from preserved or packaged foods and is intended to provide several more links in the chain of distribution between the Canadian producer and the consumer.

The book tells you something of which Canadians are justly very proud: that no other country produces food under more hygienically perfect conditions. The same standards are maintained in our home and export markets: the former because the health of the people is a paramount concern; the latter because we jealously guard our good name.

The principal Canadian pure food products which the recipes cover are dealt with under separate headings and you are asked not only to use them but to give them a fair trial by preparing them in the most appetizing manner. They are good, wholesome, and delicious: each in its own class as near perfection as can be attained. You are urged to buy them because they are good, and not simply because they are Canadian. All things being equal, you are requested to give a logical preference to the Canadian product over the foreign.

The recipes given are quite comprehensive within the field that the book covers, and it is felt that they will prove extremely useful.

Home School: Evelyn Lambart and Animation: “I was always fascinated by cutouts…” via MetaFilter

April 2nd, 2020 Comments off
Evelyn Lambart and Animation:

Stricken with hearing loss from an early age, Lambart flourished at the National Film Board, where she became the first woman animator in Canada. She collaborated with esteemed animator Norman McLaren for many years, notably on the innovative, jazzy Begone Dull Care (1949).

Lambart’s first solo film was The Impossible Map (1947), a quirky, earnest experiment with grapefruit, knives and cartography. Making Movie History: Evelyn Lambart is an excellent 5-minute doc about her career.

Lambart also used her distinctive black-background animation style in The Story of Christmas (1973). Her meticulous cutout process is shown in the NFB documentaries Eleven Moving Moments with Evelyn Lambart (see 32:00) and The Light Fantastick (see 47:00). She died in 1999.
