Meet the Presses Indie Literary Market 2017

This weekend, the Porcupine’s Quill and the Devil’s Artisan were in Toronto for the annual Meet the Presses Indie Literary Market. The event took place at Trinity-St. Paul’s Centre on November 18, and attracted an enthusiastic group of attendees interested in books, chapbooks, broadsides, zines and other creative materials. DA’s Don McLeod was there with his trusty camera, and we are pleased to share some of his photos.

One Response to Meet the Presses Indie Literary Market 2017

  1. Pingback: The Porcupine’s Quill

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.
