The Devil's Artisan
iOS Universal Newsstand
The Devil's Artisan (A Journal of the Printing Arts) 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 (Number 36).
The focus of the journal has broadened somewhat, over the past thirty years, from an early technical interest in the craft of fine printing, to its current role as `A Journal of the Printing Arts'. The magazine has, however, remained committed to its original constituency — and hence is released in the spring at the Wayzgoose festival of the Book Arts in Grimsby on the Niagara peninsula, and in the fall at the Ontario College of Art & Design Book Arts Show on McCaul Street in Toronto.
