If I wanted to sit on the sand I wouldn’t have brought this log by Steven Brekelmans (BMA, 1998) in collaboration with Fiona Curtis was published by Or Gallery in 2015. The Emily Carr University Library + Learning Commons carries a copy of this hilarious and clever book. If I wanted to sit on the sand I wouldn’t have brought this log outlines a summer of log scouting during the summer of 2015 on Long Beach in BC. We love the delicate illustrations paired with cutting prose.

Here are a few of our favourite pages from the book, but there are many more to make you laugh even on the dimmest of days.
