Published in 1976, Between Friends/Entre Amis was Canada's gift to the United States on its bicentennial.
McClelland & Stewart's press run was the most ambitious Canadian publishing project to that time, and the book received outstanding praise. It has been out of print for many years.
A special Presentation Edition was run for American dignitaries. Pierre Trudeau and Lorraine Monk personally gave President Ford his copy in a Washington ceremony.
Twenty five years later, there are 75 copies of this special edition, which was never available for sale in the U.S. or Canada. Each will be personally signed by Lorraine Monk, and is handsomely slipcased.
Each copy is $595.00, normal trade discounts apply.
Lorraine Monk, Officer of the Order of Canada and founding Executive Director of the Canadian Museum of Photography was, from 1960 to 1980, the Executive Director of the Still Photography Division, of the National Film Board of Canada. She is the recipient of 2 honorary doctorates (York University, Doctorate of Letters, and Carleton, Doctor of Literature), and many other honours, for her contributions to Canadian photography.
