Abstract (English)

By the 1920's Rouleau, Saskatchewan had become known as a "million dollar" grain town, complete with printing offices producing colourful posters for local circuses, carnivals, fairs, dances, etc. King's engraving and printing of three colour posters in the 20's, 30's and 40's mark him as a major figure in Canadian printing history and a minor master in the art of commercial woodblock engraving and printing.
