ANNOUNCING: Steam Scenes of Northern Ontario

July 31, 2018

In appreciation of readers pre-ordering a copy of the Steam in Northern Ontario reprint, we will include FREE OF CHARGE a supplementary photo volume!

Steam Scenes of Northern Ontario is a 48-page softcover release containing 80 photographs not included in the hardcover volume for space reasons. This companion volume will be published concurrently with the Steam in Northern Ontario reprint in October 2018. The regular price for Steam Scenes of Northern Ontario will be $24.95.

This offer is open for two months

We’ll accept pre-orders for Steam in Northern Ontario at the special all-inclusive price of $69.95 CAD (shipped to Canadian addresses) or $69.95 USD (shipped to addresses in the United States) until September 30, 2018.

By pre-ordering, you will receive the companion book free of charge (this also applies if you have ALREADY pre-ordered Steam in Northern Ontario)

For Canadian orders, this represents a $112.25 CAD value (at post-Sept. 30 prices, including shipping and GST) for $69.95 CAD. For U.S. orders, a $113.90 USD value for $69.95 USD.

A word about the reprint

Aside from the occasional typographical correction, the content and layout of Steam in Northern Ontario will match the first edition of 2006. HOWEVER, the book will be printed on a state-of-the-art press that Ampersand Printing did not have in 2006. We’ll be striving for even greater excellence in photo reproduction.

For anyone wishing to support the Steam in Northern Ontario reprint...

...but not wishing to purchase a copy from this second printing, you will have the opportunity to acquire a copy of Steam Scenes of Northern Ontario at a special all-inclusive pre-publication price of $26.95 CAD (a $33.55 value, shipped to addresses in Canada) or $26.95 USD (a $35.95 value, shipped to addresses in the United States) per copy until September 30, 2018.

Readers outside Canada or the United States

Please email me for a special price covering overseas shipping.

To take advantage of either offer...

...either the combination order of both Northern Ontario books for $69.95 or Steam Scenes of Northern Ontario singly at $26.95—please navigate to the Steam in Northern Ontario page (where you can place your pre-order online or download an order form if you wish to order by mail).

Family vacation

Beginning August 6th our offices will be closed for two weeks. Upon our return in late August, we’ll launch a direct mail campaign informing the world (beyond the Branchliners!) of the Northern Ontario book offers. They will be printed and shipped in October 2018—so you’ll be among the first to receive yours if you get your pre-order in before the general roll-out.

P.S. Please share this post with anyone you know who would appreciate a chance to “beat the crowd” by pre-ordering Steam in Northern Ontario and/or Steam Scenes of Northern Ontario early.
