In The Little Book of Manitoba, celebrated photographer George Fischer captures both the vast beauty of rural Manitoba and the stunning skylines of Winnipeg. The book is a kaleidoscope of colour, from the rich array of farmland greens to the bold blues and golds of the capital city shot after dark. Located halfway between the east and west coasts of Canada, Manitoba is blessed with over 100,000 lakes, flat prairies, and rolling pastures. All in stark contrast with the energetic capital of Winnipeg, home to festivals, museums, and unique architecture.
The Little Book of Manitoba comes in a travel-sized format and is the newest offering in the popular Little Book series. Features over 70 full-colour photographs of this hardy prairie province in all seasons.
