Experiment: Printing the Canadian Imagination
We're very excited to have just received our friend David McKnight's Experiment: Printing the Canadian Imagination, a catalogue of highlights from the David McKnight Canadian Little Magazine and Small Press Collection. Many Coach House originals make an appearance in this beautiful book. The selection is on display at the Bruce Peel Special Collections Library at the University of Alberta from May 3 – August 24, 2018:
This exhibition showcases some highlights from an extensive collection of Canadian little magazines, Canadian small press and micro-press imprints (including most of the 1,500 Coach House Press titles), and a complementary research archive. As a determined collector/librarian imbued with considerable passion and resolve, David McKnight invested 30 years developing a private collection that has considerable potential for research on Canadian Modernist poetry, avant-garde literature, and the production of small magazines in Canada.

We'll be browsing the book in the sun while sitting at the Coach House picnic table, but we hope our friends in Alberta can make it to see this exhibition of Canadian creativity in person!
