The Great Divide Photographs from the Canadian Rockies
The Great Divide documents artist Ernie Kroeger's 10-year obsession with the Great Divide, a major North American watershed. The book includes high-quality reproductions of Kroeger's panoramic photographs, as well as his personal writings and historical research, presenting an unusual exploration of the much-photographed Canadian Rockies. Accompanied by Alberto Manguel's literary reading of Kroeger's work, The Great Divide should appeal to members of the artistic and literary communities, as well as people interested in mountain landscapes and culture.

Visually sumptuous and intellectually provocative, Inspiring Creativity is a beautiful and lasting legacy of the national and international influence of The Banff Centre.
Second Chapter The Canadian Writers Photography Project
In 1996, photographer Don Denton set out to create a photographic archive of prominent Canadian authors. First Chapter: The Canadian Writers Photography Project collected a sampling of his project to date, including well-known writers such as Margaret Atwood, George Bowering, Karen Connelly, and Michael Turner, as well as newer faces on the Canadian writing scene. Due to the positive response to First Chapter, Don Denton offers a follow-up, pointing his lens at such Canadian authors as Douglas Coupland, Camilla Gibb, and Bill Richardson. Each of the fifty photographs is paired with a statement about the writing life from the profiled author. Advice ranges from quirky, tongue-in-cheek quips to serious contemplations of the creative process. Second Chapter shows the faces of CanLit in a revealing light.
