About the Journal

The Alcuin Society, widely recognized as Canada’s premiere bibliophilic society, has published its thrice-yearly journal, Amphora, since 1967. The backlist of Amphora is thus an enormous treasure trove of information and articles about the book arts and their practitioners, collections and collectors, reading, libraries, and book history in Canada. This publication is the result of a 2019 Scholarly Digitization Fund project, lead by John Maxwell (SFU Publishing), to digitize and share back-issues of Amphora.
