Winding Trail Press (WTP) was founded in 2003 and published its first titles in 2005. WTP publishes new and old works of Canadian literature and non-fiction. The press is named in honour of Catharine Parr Traill and the WWI song, "There's A Long, Long Trail A-Winding." The WTP logo is based on the logo of the Ryerson Press, created by Thoreau MacDonald.

Laura Brady began her career as a typesetter and designer in the early 1990s, working for McClelland & Stewart, Penguin Books, and Moveable Type. In 1997, Laura founded Brady Typesetting & Design, a small business committed to the art of type. "Text design and typesetting is an art form," says Brady, "an art steeped in history and tradition that requires experience, knowledge, and an attention to detail that can only come from a passion for the craft." Brady practices her art for many clients from her home studio in Bolton, Ontario, where she lives with her husband Ron, who works for Random House, and their two children.
