OTTAWA — For Better or For Worse?
For Lynn Johnston fans and Library and Archives Canada, it’s definitely the former.
Archives Canada has added more than 3,000 drawings, 200 watercolours and other material, including textual records and photographs, by Johnston.
Mary-Margaret Johnston-Miller, a documentary art archivist with Archives Canada, said the Johnston fond — something from one creator as opposed to a collection from different origins — is particularly significant because of Johnston’s reputation as a cartoonist.
