Queen + Stampede

Posted by Scott On May - 11 - 2012

Canada’s History magazine, first published in 1920,  (only Maclean’s has been continuously published longer in Canada…good company to keep), will be celebrating a few milestones with the June/July 2012 issue.

For the first time ever in 93 years, Canada’s History will offer newsstand buyers a split cover.  The first cover celebrates Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.  The second cover celebrates the Calgary Stampede’s 60th anniversary.  The Art Director is Michel Groleau, and the Editor is Mark Reid.

Retailers serviced by NewsWest Calgary and NewGroup Calgary will receive the Calgary Stampede cover, while the rest of Canada will be receiving the Queen cover.  The issue is officially on sale June 4th, 2012.
