Super cool keepsake.

We’re exceedingly happy to announce that the most recent issue of the Devil’s Artisan, Number 79, is now available, and it’s a beaut.
Inside you’ll read Jaleen Grove’s exploration of the work of illustrator Oscar Cahén, whose avant-garde works were intended to stimulate fascination–and even horror!–and ended up affecting the aesthetic of Canadian design in the 1940s and 50s. You’ll also find an illuminating chat with Rod McDonald on the development of his font family Classic Grotesque. Plus, we’ve got pieces about the Howard Iron Works and the Barbarian Press.
There is definitely a lot to learn–and a lot to love.
Single issue orders can be placed here.
If you have a yearly subscription, rest assured that your copy will be on its way early in the new year.
Hope you enjoy!
Have a wonderful holiday from all of us from the Porcupine’s Quill and the Devil’s Artisan.
We are very pleased to announce that the latest issue of the Devil’s Artisan, DA78, has received a Canadian Regional Design Award.
The “Redgee” Awards honours the best in Canadian design. Administered by Designedge Canada, the awards shed light on the brilliant work being done by professional creative communities across the country.
DA 78: Heading to Palookaville took the prize for Ontario in the Editorial category. In addition to the high production values and classic design that you’ll find in all DA issues, this particular issue is packed with images of the work of Canadian graphic novelist Seth. From the handsome cover to the keepsake to the little illustrations hanging out in the margins, it is definitely a visual feast.
