Since 1979, the Town of Grimsby, Ontario has hosted a wonderful Wayzgoose, or gathering of printers, book artists and bibliophiles. Each year since 1981, the Grimsby Public Art Gallery publishes a Wayzgoose Anthology comprised of signatures contributed by participating artists.
Index of Wayzgoose Anthologies:
The rudimentary database below is the humble beginning of a lofty goal: to index all the Wayzgoose Anthologies and to create an overview of nearly four decades of printing and paper arts produced Canadian letterpress printers, paper makers and book artists.
Database last updated: 3 February 2017
33 anthologies indexed to date: 1981*-92† : 1995-2015.
* 1981 anthology is partially indexed pending full consultation.
† 1993-94, 2012 anthologies still to come.
