Quill & Quire dig into archives for "new" look
Quill & Quire has undergone a few changes in its September issue. It’s not quite a redesign; it’s more a revisitation of issues past. Gone is the red and white-bannered logo and in its place is Q&Q’s first logo, which ran from the debut issue in 1935 until 1941.

“By reviving the logo, we are in some ways honouring both Q&Q’s legacy and the talent that has contributed to and appeared in the publication over the decades,” editor Sue Carter said in September’s editor’s note. “It also demonstrates our ongoing dedication and commitment to covering all facets of Canadian publishing and literature.”

Readers will also notice the introduction of long-format reviews and a monthly column, written by review editor Steven W. Beattie.

Carter also mentioned that art director Shannon Jager, “whose thoughtful creativity and artistic skill is apparent throughout the issue,” will be leaving the publication to attend grad school in New York City.

Quill & Quire is published 10 times a year and includes author profiles, news about the industry and upcoming books, as well as reviews of adult and children’s books. The September issue is out now.
