Garamond Press Ltd. (1981-2005)
Garamond Press was founded in 1981 and was the first independent Canadian publisher to specialize in books in the post secondary market. The original company directors were Peter Saunders, Errol Sharpe, Brenda Roman, Lois Pike, Richard Swift, and Michael Kelly. The press began as a collaboration between two independent Canadian collective presses, Between the Lines and Women's Press and a sales agency representing Canadian publishers in the college market, Fernwood Books, another founding partner was the owner of a print shop known as Muskox Press. The founders were conscious of the need for a progressive, critical and Canadian-controlled sector in college level publishing. Books were published in subjects such as globalization, social work, communication studies, cultural studies, history, labour studies and women's studies. In 2005 Garamond Press was sold to Broadview Press of Calgary. In 2008, University of Toronto Press (UTP) officially purchased the Broadview Press publishing lists in Anthropology, History, Politics, and Sociology, as well as the Garamond imprint. A new division called UTP Higher Education continued publishing in 2009.
