John McQuarrie with Mary Lumsden of Mill Street Books.

I told you earlier in the month about the imminent release of the lovely book Almonte, Spirit of Place by Ottawa publisher and photographer John McQuarrie.

I’m delighted to see that this glossy 152-page book has now arrived at Mill Street Books and is available for online purchase. People who preordered the book were already picking up their copies outside the store on Friday.

Featuring much content from Millstone contributors over the years, this book is a beautiful visual portrayal of our region — and a bargain at only $28 plus tax.
