New Emily Carr "Funny Book"

Emily Carr is arguably one of British Columbia's greatest artistic treasures. Recently an unknown illustrated story of hers, known as a "funny book," landed in the lap of the Royal BC Museum.

It's a charming series of illustrations and text that tell the story of an adventure she had with a friend in London in 1901.

Kathryn Bridge is an Emily Carr expert and curator at The Royal BC Museum who tells the story behind the charming book.

The "Funny Book will be part of an exhibition at the satellite gallery, Royal BC Museum at Wing Sang on East Pender in Vancouver starting next Thursday June 14.
