A visual portrait of Winnipeg as seen through the eyes of its citizens, Winnipeg by Winnipeg showcases the icons, the moods, and the neighbourhoods of Manitoba's largest city. This book is a compilation of stellar photographs of Winnipeg by 67 amateur and professional photographers. For those who call Winnipeg their home, for those who wish they could call Winnipeg their home, and for those who have stopped by to visit this fine city, the book captures the real Winnipeg in all its glory. From the beauty of the hoar frost on a crisp winter day to the sheer delight of people skating, walking, or riding our river trails and walkways; from the spectral realities of our backlanes to the seldom-seen misty mornings on Portage Avenue; from the local accessibility of our recreation and sport facilities to the eye-pleasing treasures inside our museums, Winnipeg is ablaze with colour and vitality - its strong sense of community and neighbourhood always evident.

Images of the Province by Its Citizens Manitoba by Manitoba captures the province in all its guises, from the geology and human history to farms and landscapes at sunset, from close-up shots of the province’s inhabitants, both human and not, to wintery settings under a glorious sky lit by the northern lights. This book is a compilation of photographs of Manitoba by some of our most talented amateur and professional photographers. Experience the startling contrast of these Manitoba moments: beaches that look like they could be in the Caribbean; ports that look like they could be on the shore of a sea; winter landscapes that appear arctic-like in the winter yet resemble a scene one might expect to encounter much further south when seen in the summer. Manitoba by Manitoba is sure to surprise even those most familiar with the province.

Unexplained footsteps at Seven Oaks House. A woman vanishing into thin air at the Hotel Fort Garry. Spirits reaching out from beyond the grave at the Pantages Theatre. Just what is happening in Winnipeg’s heritage buildings at night? Early Winnipeg was a booming city full of excitement with no shortage of murders, cheating lovers and tragic accidents; all play a role in Winnipeg’s reputation as one of Canada’s most haunted places. Haunted Winnipeg shares with the reader the city’s best-known ghost stories, as well as some lesser-known tales. Hear about the people who may be haunting these historic sites while learning about the buildings’ unique and creepy history. Matthew Komus has developed programs and exhibits for many different museums and heritage sites in Manitoba. Topics covered include everything from hockey and haunted buildings (very popular), to modernist architecture and composting toilets (not as popular). Though he has written articles, tours and booklets, this is his first full-length book. He also operates Winnipeg Ghost Walk, the city’s first walking tour.

A portrayal of Manitoba through the lens of its most respected photographer, Henry Kalen's Manitoba is a book that captures the landmarks, the icons and the communities of one of Western Canada's most beautiful provinces.
The prairies, the north, the cities and towns, the lakes and the rivers are captured by a photographer who revered the simple beauty of Manitoba's landscapes.
Henry Kalen, who was an architect, became one of Canada's most distinguished architectural photographers. And so Manitoba's built environment, and in particular Winnipeg's bridges, parks and buildings, are brilliantly depicted.
For visitors, for those who wish to see what Manitoba is all about and for proud Manitobans who want a visual remembrance of the province they call home, this is a collection to cherish.
