House Ad, Canadian Magazine, October 9, 1971
The Canadian Magazine, the regular venue for Doug Wright’s Famiily during it’s run, was a weekend insert syndicated to newspapers across Canada (my copy is from the Toronto Telegram’s “Weekend Magazine”). They published two of these little collections of the strip which were once common in used book stores across the land.
A nice full-page ad with great composition and fun details like Nipper stomping on his dad’s penny loafers. I wonder what kind of cut Wright got from the $2 sale of this book?


  1. Doug didn’t get any cut!

    Hi Phyllis! That’s too bad but I’m not surprised. It’s a crying shame our artists weren’t treated better by the corporations that benefiitted most from their work!
