“Get the Lead Out” at Massey College

On Wednesday, March 28, Massey College was the setting for a panel discussion by a number of grand old typesetters/designers/booklovers such as Stan Bevington of Coach House Books, Andrew Steeves of Gaspereau Press, independent designer Will Reuter, and so on. The thoughtful discussion (dealing with rare topics such as the delights of letterpress printing, and with Andrew’s division of those who bought The Sentimentalists after its Giller Prize win into “readers” and “consumers”) drew a full house, including two veterans of the Canadian publishing mainstream, William Toye of Oxford University Press and yours truly.
