Ten Canadian Colour Woodcuts
In 1927, Phillips issued his first portfolio of prints.
Entitled Ten Canadian Colour Prints, the portfolio consisted
of good-sized colour prints, and was produced in an edition of 250.
This, of course, meant that 2,500 proofs had to be produced! All of
these proofs were printed on Goyu paper.
Phillips invited the Canadian poet Duncan Campbell Scott
to write an Introduction, and he himself
provided a text entitled The Wood Block
The prints in the portfolio are as follows:
- Mount Cathedral from Lake O'Hara, B.C.
- A Muskoka Sunset
- Cathcart's Island, Muskoka
- The Red River in Winter
- Moonlight, Lake of the Woods
- The Mountain
- A Winnipeg Street, Snow-Bound
- Lake of the Woods
- Wild Cherry
