Description

The Canadian Romantic is a melodramatic figure of faded glamour who tries to bridge and explore the gap between Canada and romance with somewhat dubious results. This tenderly hand-drawn tome contains relationship advice, Canadian erotic facts, and will loom uncomfortably close in your personal space until you surrender to the moment. You will come alive with laughter feeling like you’ve woken up at an undisclosed time with makeup smeared across your face.
