Codex Montrealensis

Inspired by ancient codices this work is composed of nineteen plates of Montreal neighbourhoods, drawn and colored ink on paper. There is also a publication with the same drawings in black and white.

Below is the west end borough of Lachine where I spent some of my childhood. It gives a nod to the canal, the rapids, the Lachine Lighthouse and the fur trade (see the little beaver).  Is the large building St. Anne's Academy?
