Thaddeus Holownia travelled to the many salmon rivers of eastern Canada, in all seasons, to capture their essential qualities. Harry Thurston’s accompanying essay explores the elemental nature of these rivers that both nurture Atlantic salmon and inspire the salmon fisher. This 1,000-copy edition includes 50 full-size stochastic duotone reproductions of Holownia’s 17 × 7-inch contact prints, casebound in quarter cloth with a printed card slipcase.


Thaddeus Holownia is a visual artist, letterpress printer, and publisher. After a forty-one-year teaching and administrative career in the Department of Fine Arts at Mount Allison University in Sackville New Brunswick, Holownia recently retired from teaching and now spends his time at his studio in Jolicure, New Brunswick.

Harry Thurston is the author of more than twenty books of poetry and non-fiction including Tidal Life: A Natural History of the Bay of Fundy, A Place Between the Tides: A Naturalist’s Reflections of the Salt Marsh, and Keeping Watch at the End of the World. He lives at the edge of a salt marsh in Tidnish Bridge, Nova Scotia.
