Toronto: (1980 - 1989),
small octavo, printed wrappers. Item #28305
From the first Editorial by Paul Forage, "The Devil's Artisan has been 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. We hope to maintain a balance between scholarship and practicality." No. 2 contains the laid-in Gothic type alphabet; no. 3 has two tipped-in paste paper samples; No. 4 has the laid-in (4) pp. sample of Linotype Faces; No. 7 contains the laid-in Eric Gill sample; No. 14 has the insert of a Prayer sheet from Toronto's Chinatown; No 21 insert of the wood engraving is present; No. 23 has printed poem insert. A handsomely produced, informative journal which is still being published. A very fine, clean set of 24 of the first 25 issues (lacking No. 24).
