Review is written for Grain Elevators of Canada, October 5, 2021 by Steve

 Photographer Chris Attrell has partnered with author Christine Hanlon to produce a beautiful book featuring Canada's grain elevators, Grain Elevators: Beacons of the Prairies. This 128 page hardcover book contains numerous full colour images of the grain elevators in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.

The stars of the book are the grain elevators, evocatively photographed in all seasons in night and day. The photographs are large and colourful and are all captioned with details about the elevators and/or the area.

I must disclose that I was the copy editor for this book – and I was paid for it – so I am quite familiar with the book's contents and I am definitely biased in its favour. It was a pleasure to work with Christine, Chris and Vernon from publisher MacIntyre-Purcell on this book.

The book includes numerous sidebars describing aspects of grain elevators and the people and companies who built them. It is not "just a picture book"!


New book by Buffalo News editorial cartoonist Adam Zyglis celebrates city.

Zyglis is mostly known for his political cartoons, but the Western New York native wanted to create a love letter to Buffalo, in the form of his illustrations.

Published: September 18, 2021 , WGRZ, BUFFALO, N.Y. — You probably have seen his work in The Buffalo News over the years, but editorial cartoonist Adam Zyglis celebrated a personal achievement on Friday night.

He was at Seneca One for a book signing.

Zyglis is mostly known for his political cartoons, but the Western New York native wanted to create a love letter to Buffalo, in the form of his illustrations.

"Editorial cartooning is kind of like a negative critical art form where you're kind of criticizing in order to move forward," Zyglis said. "But this was kind of like a break to kind of make some positive humor, and make humor to bring us together in a way, so it kind of tapped into something that I've been itching to kind of get at for a while."

His newly published book is called "You Know You're from Buffalo If ..." and you can find it online at retailers such as Amazon.

About halfway into Abandoned Alberta — Joe Chowaniec's 2020 photography book documenting the dozens of abandoned communities scattered across the province — one particular image stands out from the procession of teetering farmhouses, vacant mine shafts and rusted-out pickup trucks. It's a photograph of the Northlands Coliseum, shot by Chowaniec on a winter's day from the opposite side of the arena's parking lot. Once the site of Edmonton's greatest sporting triumphs, the arena has been unused ever since the Oilers' move to Rogers Place in 2018. The building now sits as a quiet monument to mid-'70s architecture, stripped of any reminders of its former glory and patiently awaiting its demolition by the municipal government. And although the building's exterior is still completely intact, Chowaniec's choice to include it among the crumbling ruins of Abandoned Alberta sends a pointed message about the impermanence of our structures.
