Mirvish Village People – The Book

Ed Mirvish created Mirvish Village as an artist friendly neighbourhood and now this neighbourhood is going to change. Some might argue for the better others not so much and many believe the change to be inevitable as Toronto grows and evolves into a much larger and even more cosmopolitan city. Romantics, myself included like to think that redevelopment can be accomplished in a way that preserves the essence and retains the good of the old neighbourhood.


After photographing there for over a year it seemed natural that the portraits and images that I was making of the neighbourhood had to be collected into a book. The artists and entrepreneurs, those independent souls had a story to tell about their relationship to Mirvish Village, which needed to be captured as part of our urban history.


The limited edition hardcover book is printed and bound (lay-flat) by Pikto Graphics and includes 68 images plus the exclusive article, Of Form and Future: The Sensibility of Mirvish Village by Suzanne Crone. Each book is individually signed and numbered by the artist and the edition is limited to 250.
