Then, Andrew Steeves, designer and publisher at Gaspereau Press, in Kentville, Nova Scotia, will show how a small literary press of the twenty-first century has more in common with the Verdussens than well-established conventions and practices employed in today's mainstream publishing trade. Together, Van Rossem and Steeves will demonstrate that innovation in a twenty-first century printing firm draws heavily on historic roots of four centuries earlier.

Andrew Steeves is the co-founder of Gaspereau Press in Kentville, Nova Scotia, a multi-award winning small press book publisher that prints with both letterpress and offset printing technologies. Not a traditional fine press operation, Gaspereau publishes first-run Canadian literature with open-ended runs. "We also do the occasional full-out letterpress limited editions—maybe one every few years, though we're gearing up to increase the frequency," says Steeves.

Gaspereau was founded in 1997 by Gary Dunfield and Steeves, and has carved out a niche in the contemporary trade publishing business by placing more emphasis on the design and art of the bookmaking process.
Both Dewinetz and Steeves teach students about typography, while both continue to be dedicated to learning and creating the best books possible themselves. Steeves offers these words to budding book designers: "A few basic concepts would fix many of the world's typographic woes.

Andrew Steeves and Gaspereau Press: What Do You Mean by Beautiful? psadminDec 11, 2014 No Comments
Andrew Steeves and Gaspereau Press: What Do You Mean by Beautiful?
So said Wendell Berry in his book of essays, Standing by Words, and so quoted Andrew Steeves in his book, Smoke Proofs: Essays on Literary Publishing, Printing and Typography.
Andrew Steeves and Gary Dunfield operate Gaspereau Press, founded in 1997.
Some critics interpreted the shortage of books as a snafu, which bemused Steeves.
He told the National Post, "What happened is we seemed to have a real conversation about culture-not just like an author won an award, there's lots of money-but also about how does culture happen?
Which also bemuses Steeves. In Smoke Proofs, he writes, "implicit in the statement (that my books are beautiful) is the notion that these production values represent something literally extraordinary…
"[A] society that elevates basic craftsmanship to a position akin to magic is a society that is functioning, to borrow Wendell berry's phrase, 'outside the sphere of human definition, meaning and responsibility.'"
I ask Steeves about the future of the book. How can its lofty ideals square with 21st century immediacy? What of its beauty versus its functionality? I'm coming at these questions now from the other side, as a first-time author who's just launched her first novel. The desire for answers seems more urgent than before. Steeves directs me, immediately, to his book.
