Friesens banking on books

We are reprinting an article from the Winnipeg Free Press concerning the impressive Friesens Corporation which published Ian’s memoir, From Poverty to Poverty: A Scotsman Encounters Canada. Our next posting will deal with a recent trip we took to see the presses in motion and to pick up more copies of Ian’s book.

ALTONA — More than 20 million copies of the Robert Munsch children’s classic Love You Forever have come off the presses of Friesens Corp. in Altona since the book was first published in 1986. With the new Manroland XXL press Friesens unveiled Tuesday, it will be able to print any press run four times as fast.
