Barbara Klunder has always felt it to be an honour to illustrate and design musicevent posters, ads, t-shirts and CD covers for the Jazz, Blues, and Toronto music community, including the legendary BamBoo Club, over the years. She feels if her work has helped the musicians/magicians get a larger audience, we all win. The illustration above is from her new book, ‘Other Goose’, recycled rhymes for our fragile times, written with a bit of a beat that she figures she picked up from hanging around this unhinged tribe. It is published by Groundwood Books/House of Anansi Press and available everywhere. 116

The Toronto Musicians’ Association is honoured to have an original illustration, created by Barbara Klunder, which represents so well the spirit of our association, for the cover of this edition of See the Music.
