November 15-16, 5035 Saint-Dominique, Montreal, Québec, free admission ! Expozine, Montreal’s enormous small press fair, is the most anticipated event of the year, impossible to miss if you’re a fan of print publications, art, the ephemeral and the unique. Crossing the wooden door to enter the main hall, one is taken first with the smell of ink and paper, heralding a thousand finds.
