This is just a brief note to say that production for the University of Manitoba Press' spring titles has recently put a crimp in Lost Foote Photos' style.
If you're curious, UMP's reprints of Jennifer Reid's Louis Riel and the Creation of Modern Canada and Erika Dyck's Psychedelic Psychiatry: LSD on the Canadian Prairies are both available.
The last few weeks have been spent putting the finishing touches on Robin Jarvis Brownlie & Valerie J. Korinek's Finding a Way to the Heart: Feminist Writings on Aboriginal and Women’s History in Canada, which will be due out in April and Larry Krotz' Piecing the Puzzle: The Genesis of AIDS Research in Africa, which will come out in May.
But we've got lots of found photos to share and several favourite Foote photo columns from archivists and artists and historians on the way.
David Carr, U of M Press' director, even has a story to tell about another visit to a small archive where he uncovered Foote photos.
So be patient with us, this week and next, and come back!
