Ian McCausland and Mike Grandmaison present at GDC's first installment of this year's 'Lunch Talk Series'.
Friesens Corporation, one of North America's finest printers of quality books, invited Mike Grandmaison to collaborate on a book project to showcase Friesens in-house digital and binding technology. Mike adapted long time collaborator Rob Peters' design (Circle Design) from a previous commission to produce this 64 page, 16 x 6.5 inch color booklet featuring Mike's fine art photography from The Canadian Gallery. By flipping each side of this compound book, the reader is able to compare the quality of the same image printed on conventional offset printing with that of the recent advances of digital printing.

Would You Like to Publish A Book of Your Own ?
Don't miss this event!
I love books! I particularly love 'fine books'. Many people dream of publishing a book but don't have a clue about how to go about it. Beginning with the idea and followed by the creation of the works (paintings, photograph, prose, etc), there comes a time when the idea must be put down on paper for all to see and enjoy. Finding a publisher today is no easy task as there are not only fewer publishers around but also more people wanting to publish a book.
