Devil’s Artisan launches new website

Friday, March 20th, 2009

For thirty years, The Devil’s Artisan has been the premiere journal of the printing arts in Canada. They’ve just revamped their website to include a blog and other features, including free dingbats. The latest issue is guest-edited by Martha Fleming on the subject of her father, Allan Fleming.

From the website:

The Devil’s Artisan (DA) first appeared in 1980 under the editorship of Paul Forage, William Rueter (University of Toronto Press) and Glenn Goluska, latterly of Coach House Press (Toronto) and currently print design consultant to Phyllis Lambert at the Centre for the Study of Architecture in Montreal. The magazine was founded `for the purpose of presenting to Canadian readers information on the craft of printing and bookmaking, on bibliographic and historic matters, and on communicative, sociological, and technical subjects related to printing.’

The Porcupine’s Quill purchased the magazine in the spring of 1995 and has published two issues a year, spring and fall, since that time.
