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.

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?

One Response to Coach House Wayzgoose 2019

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.
