Join us for the launch of Tyler Brett’s new book Every Building & Some People in Bruno SK circa 2011 at Publication Studio/Selectors Records, 8 East Pender Street, Vancouver BC.
The book is a series of matter-of-fact representations of everyday life in the town of Bruno, suitable for colouring by adults or children or for quiet enjoyment. Printed and bound on-premises by Publication Studio, it is available for the reasonable price of $20, and will be available for online order after the event.
Bruno Saskatchewan is a town of roughly six hundred people located about one hour east of Saskatoon. In addition to all of the public service and amenity buildings, the drawings in this book document every one of the town of Bruno’s shops (all of which were locally owned and operated) as they existed in 2011. Some of the drawings are also of, or include, shopkeepers, or members of the community who were associated with the buildings depicted. Tyler Brett lived on Main St. and worked in and around Bruno for seven years as a carpenter assistant and occasionally as one of the local shopkeepers. Since leaving Bruno in 2013, many of these buildings and businesses have changed ownership, and some of the people drawn have since passed away. This book is a tribute to all of them. Brett now lives in Sointula BC on Malcolm Island where he works as a paramedic and runs The Sointula Art Shed Artist Residency with Kerri Reid, their son Teddy, cat Marvin and six chickens.
