The Northern Miner

New book: The Art and Humour of John Kilburn – Cartoons from The Northern Miner

The Northern Miner is pleased to announce the publication of The Art and Humour of John Kilburn – Cartoons from The Northern Miner. It’s a hilarious, 262-page anthology of mining cartoons by our resident cartoonist John Kilburn, collected and edited by John Cumming and Isa Cunanan.

Unique in its scope and ambitions, this anthology gathers the best Northern Miner cartoons created over 25 years by Kilburn, a Vancouver-based mining professional who has worked in Western Canada as a mining engineer, broker, journalist, equity analyst and investor.

Kilburn stylishly captures the mining sector’s biggest events over the past quarter century as well as its perennial conundrums with a cast of characters that includes engineers, geologists, miners, promoters, executives and environmentalists. Joining the cast are a menagerie of coal mine canaries, camp dogs and llamas, plus a special appearance by Santa.

With a foreword by Pierre Lassonde, cofounder and chairman of Franco-Nevada, an introduction by John Cumming, editor-in-chief of The Northern Miner, and hundreds of boisterous JK mining cartoons like you’ve never seen them before.

Supply is limited, with delivery in 2-4 weeks.
