Plans to shop at department stores, discount stores, and mail-order catalogues
are similar to what Gallup measured at the beginning of this decade.
There are now well-appointed stores in Toronto, Halifax, Calgary, London, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Vancouver, but a vast portion of total sales results from wide distribution of their premium-quality mail-order catalogues
to people in remote spots like Sudbury and Spusm where the company has no stores.
Tomaselli's artistic practice models the balance of obsession and irony, and it's fun to imagine him in his studio, surrounded by piles of mail-order catalogues
, gluesticks, and baggies of drugs, painstakingly assembling a world.
