Experiment: Printing the Canadian Imagination

Highlights from the David McKnight Canadian Little Magazine and Small Press Collection

This exhibition catalogue features over 100 highlights of a large and extraordinary collection of Canadian little magazines and Canadian small press and micro-press imprints assembled by David McKnight. As a determined collector/librarian imbued with remarkable passion and resolve, McKnight invested 30 years developing a private collection that has considerable potential for literary research in the areas of Canadian Modernist poetry, avant-garde literature, and the production of small magazines in Canada. McKnight generously donated the collection to the University of Alberta Libraries in 2012, and this publication unveils the collection publicly for the first time.
