‘In DA‘s world, people who can operate a nineteenth-century handcranked cast iron printing press are rock stars. Of course, unlike the grubby xeroxed or Gestetnered zines of yesteryear, DA is beautifully printed, with elegant bookmarks, prints, and other little extras inserted in each issue. DA also manages to be full of historical significance.’
Excerpted from ‘History of Printing’ by historian Christopher Moore in Christopher Moore’s History News.
‘Just a note to say how much I’m enjoying DA 61. The cover is beautiful, the illustrations inside are great, and the lead article is rekindling my interest in Carman. I’m recalling a course in Maritime literature from my days at Mount Allison in Sackville, reading Low Tide on Grand Pré. And, of course, I continue to wonder whether any sources exist that might shed light on Carman’s personal or literary erotics. Excellent work all around.’ — Steven Maynard, Professor of History, Queen’s University, Kingston
‘We have been a subscriber forever or since DA began, whichever is longer…. Yours is quite a wonderful little journal.’ — R. Russell Maylone, Curator, Northwestern University Library, Evanston, Illinois
