PICKING UP OUR BOOKS AT THE PRINTERS’

Thanks to the staff at Friesens Corporation in Altona, Manitoba for an interesting tour of their facility as we drove south of Winnipeg to take possession of several more boxes of Ian’s memoir, “From Poverty to Poverty​: A Scotsman Encounters Canada”. We had run out of copies, having sold more on our travels from British Columbia to our new home in Manitoba this summer and having left a number for sale at the Orange Toad Coffee House and Bookstore in Flin Flon, Manitoba. We were very impressed with this state-of-the-art facility in small town Manitoba that publishes so many best-selling books.

Below is a slide show documenting what we encountered during this special day.

  1. Hi Gayle and Ian
    What a great idea to share a slide show of your printer’s operation! Haven’t been “in” a printing plant for many years. Recognized the old linotype machine from my cub reporter says (Back when the Earth was still cooling!). Thanks so much for sharing.
