A Passion For Excellence

Photography by Richard Bain
Foreword by Bill Brady

Hardcover | 120 Pages

Available from The London Club

Growing up in rural Vermont I learned at an early age the importance of local, seasonal ingredients. My mother and father lived on a 30-acre plot of land with an acre of garden that we would sow every spring and from which we would harvest vegetables throughout the summer. My mother would take me foraging for wild fiddleheads and mushrooms and we would return home to craft something uniquely Vermont and special. I look back on those days with great happiness and wherever I travel in the world, I’m constantly reminded of the changing seasons and their effect on the food we harvest and cook. I hope this book portrays the passion and excellence we at the London Club cherish so much and, through these recipes, brings your family and friends together at the dinner table for memories that will last a lifetime.

A London Legacy

Photography by Richard Bain
Foreword by Eric Lindros

Hardcover | 144 Pages

Available from Binea Press, Inc.

As Canadians get ready to observe and celebrate the nation’s 150th anniversary in 2017, London Legacy attempts to capture two main themes. One is a pictorial retrospective of those iconic firms and institutions whose accomplishments and contributions have been a major part of the continuing growth and success of London. The other is a more futuristic look at the organizations and businesses that will help to carry the city through the next 150 years– in other words both the Legends and Rising Stars. Captured as always through the vivid lens of Richard Bain’s camera, the stories and the photographic artwork found in the book are simply stunning and poignant. Having purposely avoided the bricks-and-mortar-type shots that so often define books of this nature, London Legacy has focused instead on the very real contributions that these organizations, both old and new, have made to the social fabric of the community.

Country Roots • Global Reach

Photography by Richard Bain
Foreword by Lisa LaFlamme

Hardcover | 152 Pages

Available from Greater KW Chamber of Commerce

It was the rivers – the Grand, the Speed and the Nith – that prompted the first settlers to stop in what would become Waterloo Region and it is those waters that still unite the region. While they remain a vital part of the agricultural, industrial and urban areas that flourished around them, they serve another equally important function: The tranquility of the water and the trails, parklands and wildlife that surround it offer refreshment for the spirit. The landmarks of my early life are almost entirely rooted in Waterloo Region, so it is a great honour to reflect on those landmarks through the beautiful photographs of Richard Bain – powerful in their simplicity and meaningful in the memories they evoke.

This book captures the essence of the “classic city”…the charm and graciousness of an ideal place to live that has never lost its sense of community, the serene beauty of the Avon River and its verdant embankments and, towering above, the world famous Festival Theatre that has added colour and variety to Stratford’s character.
