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.
You can learn more about the Redgee Awards here, and check out the 2016 winners here.
Of course, DA 78 is available for purchase, in print and digital formats, here.
We couldn’t help but humbly brag about this accomplishment. It’s definitely nice when the thought and care that goes into each issue is noticed by the design community as well as our die hard fans!
On October 3, 2016, the Alcuin Society held their annual awards ceremony at the Arts and Letters Club in Toronto. On hand for the event was editor Don McLeod, who took these lovely photos to commemorate the occasion.

Every year, on the last Saturday of April, printers, bookbinders, paper makers, publishers and other book enthusiasts flock to the small town of Grimsby, Ontario for the Grimsby Wayzgoose AKA Annual Book Arts Fair. 2016 marked the 38th year of the fair, and featured an exciting lineup of vendors and a very appreciative crowd. Devil’s Artisan Editor Don McLeod was on hand with his trusty camera, as were other staff and friends of the Porcupine’s Quill. Scroll through the photos below for a peek at the events of the day.
