This exhibition will feature highlights from the David McKnight Canadian Little Magazine and Small Press Collection, including Canadian little magazines, small press and micro-press imprints, and a complementary research archive.

David McKnight has considerable experience, passion, and knowledge as a collector and as a librarian, and he spent 30 years developing this extraordinary collection, which includes P.K. Page's copy of Preview, John Sutherland's run of First Statement, Allan Ginsberg's copies of TISH, and a nearly complete collection of the 1,500 Coach House Press imprints.

With the exception of a two-week closure (June 11-22), the exhibition will run from April 27 to August 24, 2018.

The exhibition catalogue will be available for use in the library or for purchase at the Peel library, through the University of Alberta Press, or online book retailers.

Bruce Peel Special Collections is open to researchers and visitors year around, Monday-Friday from 12:00-4:30pm. (Exception: We will be closed for the installation of a specialized storage system between June 11-22, 2018)
