The Stacks School of Typography: the Role of Libraries and Archives in the Development of Gaspereau Press

Gaspereau Press is a Canadian literary publisher and printshop established in 1997 in Nova Scotia by Gary Dunfield and Andrew Steeves. Gaspereau Press publishes some of Canada’s most original and innovative authors and is dedicated to editing, designing and manufacturing their books in a fashion that honours their content as well as the great humanist tradition of printing and publishing. Employing a wide range of modern and antiquated production techniques and technologies, Gaspereau Press creates books that marry function and form. From limited-edition letterpress projects to Smyth-sewn trade paperbacks with handprinted jackets, every project carries some trace of the human mind, eye and hand. The result is a unique publishing list of award-winning books – affordable, beautiful, and designed to endure.
