Join us for the opening night of the Canadian Fine Press Exhibit, which marks the beginning of the John M. Kelly Library's 50th Anniversary.

With exhibitions at five locations on the University of Toronto campus, the Canadian Fine Press Exhibit celebrates a wide range of letterpress publications, hand-printed ephemera, chapbooks and other fine press works to be found within the university’s special collections and libraries.

The exhibition runs concurrently from January to May 2019 and includes spotlights on poetry chapbooks, Toronto area fine presses, individual printers and designers and the career of printer and designer Glenn Goluska (1947-2011).

The Canadian Fine Press Exhibit will launch at the University of St. Michael's College with the release of the Kelly Library imprint A Tetrad on January 22, 2019. The lecture program for the event will begin with opening remarks at 6 p.m. in Alumni Hall 100, 121 St. Joseph Street. A reception will follow in the Kelly Library.
