Interpretation of Canada's First Nations and Canadian History

Early Canadian illustration designs depict First Nations culture to educate and/or, to advertise products. Imperial Tobacco Company of Canada Limited, 1924, issued this tobacco card (cards were inserted as advertising into cigarette packages).

The series of cards included themes such as Canadian flora, fauna, and other aspects of Canadian culture. You will learn more about the tradition of Tobacco cards and other forms of illustration, advertising, graphic design and ephemera in the coming weeks.
