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.

The exhibition will run from 27 April to 24 August 2018.



The exhibition catalogue will be available 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 exhibition visitors year around, Monday-Friday from 12:00-4:30pm.
