The Art of Ludmila

Dr. Ludmila has been enamoured and obsessed with the natural world since she was a child. It’s ironic she discovered her gift to depict Nature’s many and diverse beings late in life.
Behold the paintings of Dr. Ludmila, self-taught artist.
Her mission? To awaken the wonder of children, all children, so they may witness Mother Nature’s creatures before humans obliterate all life forms.
This is a legacy of love and respect for Earth’s bounty.

There's Something About This Place hockey book

So why Haliburton? Why is the area like it is? How can a village such as this command such significant attention in the million dollar National Hockey League?
This book aims to address that very question. By delving into its social and hockey history and studying the area’s people and personalities perhaps we might see what makes Haliburton so influential in the world of professional hockey. Consider this a literary investigation into an obscure but tasty cultural phenomenon.
Maybe there is truly something about this place.

Sunny-Side Up at the Kosy Korner

Yes, it seems odd. With all the important things going on in the world these days – economic downturns, wars and monumental environmental concerns – here’s a book about a simple, even inconspicuous diner situated in rural Ontario. Gathered between these covers are words, photos and a bit of history about a place where nothing too dramatic or exciting happens, where eggs are cracked, bacon sizzles and good coffee is served hot – a place where people generally come in happy and leave in the very same way.

Then again, perhaps it is precisely for these reasons that a book like this ought to be written. After all, the Kosy Korner has been a Haliburton icon for 75 years and counting. In that time it has served lumbermen, salesmen, trappers, soldiers, farmers, teamsters, hunters, anglers, tourists, doctors, nurses, teachers, secretaries, housewives, common folks and even a movie star.

“Thank you so much for the copy of Artists of Algonquin.

It's gorgeous. But more than that, it's a lovely tribute to many great artists who deserve more recognition, and will now have it.”
