We Have a Winner!


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.


portraitWe 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!

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.
