Wish You Were Here Book

Wish You Were Here is the first book by Stan Milosevic, the Winnipeg-based photographer and collector behind manitobaphotos.com.

Published by Great Plains Publications, the book is a compilation of images from hand-tinted postcards depicting early Winnipeg streets and buildings, accompanied by text from the author with historical tidbits about the buildings and landmarks featured on the cards.

Design elements including stamps, postmarks and snippets of handwriting were used sparingly, giving the postcards room to breathe and stand as the small works of art they are. Typography echoes the style in place at the turn of the century, adding to the dreamlike and evocative mood.
