Coach House Wayzgoose 2019
DA Editor Don McLeod, also our photographer-at-large, is always out and about taking pictures of fun literary and printerly events in the GTA. His latest adventure was the Coach House Wayzgoose, an annual event which took place on September 5 at Coach House Book’s charming abode on bpNichol Lane. If you missed it, here’s a recap in photos, all taken (except where noted) by Don McLeod.
An overview of the crowd of attendees who came out to celebrate the Coach House Wayzgoose.

Coach House humour–on point, as per usual.
Of course, what kind of party would it be without books on offer?
And for the mechanically inclined, how cool is this old linotype machine?
Hope you enjoyed this cool photo gallery of pictures from the wayzgoose. Many thanks to Don McLeod, as always, for providing pictures, and to Chester Gryski, for lending his talents as well.
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.
