A Death Greatly Exaggerated: Canada’s Thriving Small and Fine Press

Wednesday, May 22, 2013 to Saturday, September 7, 2013
22 May to 30 August 2013
Showcases some of the finest examples of the book-making craft in Canada from the country's leading small and fine press publishers.

This exhibition explores some of the finest examples of the book-making craft since the year 2000, along with a quick nod of the small press’s past.  It draws upon the Fisher Library’s rich and extensive small and fine press holdings, and features examples from publishers spanning the entire country: from Mission, BC’s Barbarian Press to Gaspereau Press in Kentville, Nova Scotia. It highlights the "veterans" of the small press scene, including The Aliquando Press and Porcupine’s Quill, as well as artist books and illustrated works from some of this country’s leading practioners of the book arts. This exhibit is curated by the Fisher Library’s John Shoesmith.
