Small Manitoba town prints secret Potter book

The CBC has a nifty little Story on the location of the printer that is turnging out the new Harry Books.

\"The project, being bound and boxed south of Winnipeg, has been as closely guarded as a sorcerer\'s volume of incantations. Friesen\'s Corp. in Altona, Man. was chosen to print 300,000 copies of the latest Potter book for all of Canada, mainly because of its central location. Shipments can be easily sent across the country.

But the printer also has a history of handling secret projects, including Princess Diana\'s biography, and Salman Rushdie\'s The Satanic Verses.


Although outsiders are not allowed into Friesen\'s, it\'s hard to keep a famous hardcover hushed up in a small town.
