Blew Ointment began life as a mimeographed periodical notable for its often hand-
decorated covers and inserts. It began to publish pamphlets and chapbooks by individual
authors in 1967. The press was purchased by David Lee and Maureen Cochrane in 1984
and the name was eventually changed to Nightwood Editions (Toronto and London, ON),
which continued as an imprint of Harbour Publishing in Madiera, B.C.
