Jack McMaster at Gaspereau Press

By (author): Andrew Steeves

Illustrator and calligrapher Jack McMaster was a frequent contributor to Gaspereau Press productions. From the complex pochoir stencil work he did for a limited edition letterpress project to multicolored book jacket illustrations, McMaster loved a challenge. His good humour, openness and commitment to collaboration gave his association with the press a significance beyond his skill with pen, pencil and brush. McMaster died in September 2016 of complications related to cancer. This short chapbook reproduces samples of lettering and illustrations McMaster executed for Gaspereau Press between 2006 and 2016 and provides both a biographical sketch and checklist.
