The People’s Photo Album, the inaugural publication of HARP Publishing: The People’s Press, honours the Extension Department of St. Francis Xavier University (StFX) on its 90th Anniversary.
This collection of 800+ black-and-white and colour photos gathered from more than 150 families and archives traces the cooperative arts across four generations of the Antigonish Movement, from Frs. Moses Coady’s and Jimmy Tompkins’ 1920’s resolve to offer adult education to ‘the masses’ to today’s global leadership of the Coady International Institute.
We recognize that the Album itself is beyond the budget of many individuals and non-profit/social enterprise organizations who were our contributors and collaborators on this community-building project – A healthy community knows its history. HARP is now offering photo packages (individual pages) online. Individuals, families and non-profits can now select and order individual pages to give as a unique gift for a celebration or to add to their genealogical and/or organizational records. http://www.harppublishing.ca/books/the-peoples-photo-album/personal-pages-packages/
The individual photo pages are also generating interest as retirement gifts and as a thank you to generous donors.
Order early to allow three weeks for delivery in Canada, two weeks for local (Antigonish) orders.
Individual photo pages 13 x 11 on Classic Linen are suitable for framing and available for $13 CDN. Photo packages are individually priced and include the back cover print of Kitchen Meeting sketched by Antigonish artist Adam Tragakis.
