Canzine! Printopolis! Toronto!
So I am in Toronto for the weekend in honor of Printopolis and the Canzine fair. I gave a talk at OCAD on friday, saw some lovely prints around town, ate some crepes and chinese food and most importantly went to this store:
There are literally PILES of treasure in this place. Things spill out into the one narrow aisle until you cannot possibly walk any further back. There are random gears extracted from music boxes, typewriters, old suitcases, a couple select books (the dictionary of symbolism, caught my eye) and many an old fan. I did not buy anything, and nothing had a price tag on it, but this shop single handedly made me love Toronto. Well that and this mind blowing David Hoffos exhibit at the Museum for Contemporary Canadian Art. Tiny little windows into other worlds. People disappearing and then reappearing. Peep holes into how the magic happens. Mirrors, televisions, tape and magic. Serious.
Anywho. I will be at the Canzine festival tomorrow peddling my wares. Please come if you are in or Around Toronto. I'm pretty sure it would be worth the drive if you can go see the David Hoffos exhibit. Not kidding. Besides the fair takes place in this lovely building
