We’re on Pinterest!


Hello there to all you printmakers, artisans and book lovers. We know that you like to learn about book arts, publishing and other crafty endeavors—otherwise, what are you doing here?

In order to share some of our interests with you (and maybe even learn more about your interests) we’ve started a Pinterest account with a number of boards designed to keep you interested and engaged in the vibrant community of book arts enthusiasts around the world. We’ll post cool event photos from happenings like the Grimsby Wayzgoose, awe-inspiring images of printing history like those from DA Editor Don McLeod’s trip to the Plantin-Moretus Museum, as well as free printable dingbats, general interest how-tos and photos to spark your creative spirit. Perhaps we’ll add a few sneak peeks in the mix as well!


And where can you find this veritable treasure trove? You can find it on the DA Pinterest page here:


Follow us and see what we’re sharing today.

Happy pinning,

The Devil's Artisan is remarkable in Canadian publishing in that most of the physical production of our journal is completed in-house at the shop on the Main Street of Erin Village. We print on a twenty-five inch Heidelberg KORD, typically onto acid-free Zephyr Antique laid. The sheets are then folded, and sewn into signatures on a 1907 model Smyth National Book Sewing machine.

To take a virtual tour of the pressroom, visit us at YouTube for a discussion of offset printing in general, and the operation of a Heidelberg KORD in particular. Other videos include Four Colour Printing, Smyth Sewing and Wood Engraving. Photographs of production machinery used on these pages were taken by Sandra Traversy on site at the printing office of the Porcupine's Quill, December 2008.

The Devil's Artisan would like to acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada through the Canada Magazine Fund (CMF) through the Support for Arts and Literary Magazines (SALM) component toward our editorial and production costs. Thanks, as well, for the generosity of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Sleeman Brewing Company.
