Bruce Peel Special Collections, University of Alberta
Mounties on the Cover showcases an immense selection of books, magazines, and comics that were passionately collected by Al Lund, distinguished Staff Sergeant (retired) of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). The catalogue presents an overview of the history of the RCMP and its visual representation in various contexts for various audiences, thus depicting the essence of popular culture over time.
The catalogue design references the scale and style of materials included in the book. Type styles and colour palette are specifically tied to the collection, with red – for the RCMP – being a dominant colour throughout.
