Art Global fonds. - 1978-1980. - 1.5 m of graphic material and textual record.

Administrative History

Ara Alain Kermoyan founded this publishing company specializing in book production in Montreal in 1972. Initially, Art Global published original prints by Canadian artists and distributed them through a print club. Since 1975, Kermoyan has published illustrated books where the graphic and written arts exist in symbiosis. He selects significant texts and illustrates them with prints, silkscreens and, frequently, with plates. Art Global publications include Roch Carrier's La Guerre, yes sir! (1975), Jacques Godbout's Salut Galarneau! (1976), Anne Hébert's Kamouraska (1977), Hubert Aquin's Prochain épisode (1978), Claude Jutras's Mon Oncle Antoine (1979), Réjean Ducharme's Le Nez qui voque, André Langevin's Poussière sur la ville and Claude Le Sauteur (as told to Georges Dor).
