Julien Hébert, a pioneer in the emergence of design in Quebec, left his mark in the fields of furniture, space planning, exhibition design, graphics, and was the mentor of many designers, including Michel Dallaire . Many of his works are famous, and some are milestones of public space: logo of Expo 67, ceiling of the National Arts Center in Ottawa, furniture and space of Canada at Expo 67, murals of the metro Place-Saint- Henri and the Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier ... This exhaustive work traces the career of the “father of Quebec design”, while addressing the contemporary repercussions linked to his work. It is enriched with numerous photographs, illustrations, drawings and archival documents. Under the pen of Martin Racine, a whole era, marked by the beginnings of design and the quest for beautiful objects in Quebec, comes to life.
