Canadian Animal Series III

The Canadian Animal Series began in 1960 when the province of Manitoba sponsored a Canadian souvenir competition in anticipation of the national centennial in 1967. Industrial designer Lawrie McIntosh entered and won the competition with a series of animal figures that were created by folded sheets of vinyl. Larger copper versions of the award-winning animals were sold across Canada throughout the 1970s, selling over 1000 units.

Four decades later, a third series of animals is now available. This series can be purchased as a PDF file that is printed at home on card stock and then folded and glued by the user. Series 3 celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of this award-winning design.
