University of British Columbia Campus by James Hill, another grand Maclean’s magazine cover image from the 1950s. Published March 31, 1956, it depicts the hustle and bustle of the end of the school year, but could just as easily be applied to the end of the fall semester. This blog post (and comment stream) is a testament to his career, and an impressive body of his illustrations can be seen in this photoset. [More…]

Giant Checkers in Stanley Park, seen on the cover of Maclean’s, August 1, 1953, by Franklin (Archie) Arbuckle (bio). In the 1940s and ’50s, he produced more than 100 covers for Maclean’s (source:Canada through the eyes of Arbuckle)

I’ve walked by this giant checkerboard in Stanley Park many a time, walking my dog. No only plays here anymore, but I can totally imagine a revival. Anyone interested? GIANT CHECKERS YOU GUYS!

Jillian Tamaki reminds us there was a time when Maclean’s actually used illustrations on their covers (this cover was by Oscar Cahen). I don’t think I’ve ever seen them use an illustrated cover in my 41 years. (By the way, this is me dropping a gigantic hint to whomever is the Art Director there right now.)
