DA 87 cover reveal with blank cover decorated with question mark

Can you believe that in a few short months we’ll be celebrating the release of yet another fascinating issue of Canada’s journal of the printing arts, The Devil’s Artisan? It seems like forever ago, but also just yesterday that we were announcing the arrival of DA 86.

But we don’t like to be idle, so even as you’ve sat down to enjoy the latest issue, we’ve been turning our attention to the next, and we’re too excited not to let you in on some of the developments.

So, to whet your appetite for the Fall/Winter 2020 issue, today we he have a treat for you: a cover reveal! You (yes, you!) are the first to clap eyes on the outstanding cover, and, if you look closely, you’ll be able to discern the lead article, too.

Drumroll please…

DA 87 cover, featuring circus design and title "Trading in the Real: Andrew King and Design on the Canadian Prairies"

Isn’t it stupendous? I absolutely love the bright carnival design–it evokes such joy and nostalgia! It definitely promises and entertaining look at some regional Canadian design history.

We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek at the cover of our next issue. Check back in a few weeks for a sneak peek at the contents!

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.
