However, some things remain the same: Insomniac always strives to publish the most exciting new writers it can find. 

The common denominator in Insomniac’s publishing program is its willingness and ability to venture in new directions, both editorially, and in the areas of promotion, marketing, and publicity, all the while maintaining the highest standards.

Guernica Editions

Toronto, ON

People often ask: “Why Guernica?” On Monday, April 26th, 1937, the bells of Santa Maria tolled, warning of the inhumane aerial raid that would reduce the Spanish city of Guernica to ruins. Picasso immortalized the victims with his painting Guernica and the image has become a plea for peace.
