It’s been 40 years since the first issue of Rampike, a cutting-edge literary magazine, rolled out from the basement of Rivercrest Road near the Humber River, in Toronto’s west end.

In 1979, its unique format — 18 inches tall and 6 inches wide — stood out against other publications. It was available on five continents, and now, all 24 volumes are accessible anywhere with an internet connection.
