The Group of Seven were a famous group of Canadian artists who were known for their vivid depictions of Canadian landscapes, especially from the northern part of the country. The original group included Franklin Carmichael, Lawren Harris, A. Y. Jackson, Frank Johnston, Arthur Lismer, J. E. H. MacDonald, and Frederick Varley. As with many people who have careers in the arts, these men were not completely focused on landscapes. Many of them took on other contracts to make a living. These included book illustrations, some of which are featured here on Faded Page.
Arthur Lismer did sketches, one of which is shown here, for Come A Singing!, a book of Canadian folk songs by Marius Barbeau. Frank (Franz) Johnston illustrated Friendly Acres, a book of humorous anecdotes by Peter McArthur. Franklin Carmichael created some engraving work for the Thorn-Apple Tree by Grace Campbell. Frederick Varley illustrated Canada: The Foundations of Its Future, by Stephen Leacock.
