Description

About the Canadian Fine Press Exhibition

With exhibitions at five locations on the University of Toronto campus, the Canadian Fine Press Exhibit celebrates a wide range of letterpress publications, hand-printed ephemera, chapbooks, and other fine press works to be found within the university’s special collections and libraries.

The exhibition runs concurrently from January to May 2019 and includes spotlights on poetry chapbooks, Toronto area fine presses, individual printers and designers, and the career of printer and designer Glenn Goluska (1947-2011).

Discover numerous examples of artisanal publishing at its finest, as well as the stories behind the presses and printers that made these works possible.



The Canadian Fine Press Exhibit will launch at the University of St. Michael's College with the release of the Kelly Library imprint "A Tetrad" on January 22, 2019, at 6:00 pm the Muzzo Family Alumni Hall 100, 121 St. Joseph Street. See the itinerary below.

Explore the Canadian Fine Press Special Collections: Open houses from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm on January 22 at the other exhibit locations.
