A History in Six Couplets

Another fabulous perk of my new job? Getting to assist in designing (and even printing) the famous Literary House Press letterpress-printed broadsides commemorating visiting writers. Last Tuesday, December 4, the lovely poet and translator Idra Novey came to give a poetry reading at the Lit House as part of our Jewish Voices series. Her most recent poetry collection is Exit, Civilian (2012). We chose to create a broadside of her poem "A History in Six Couplets" from her book The Next Country (2008). 

For her broadside, I was hands-on in the design process. How hands-on? I got to carve the linoleum block of this broken city skyline! To say, I love my job, seems an understatement at this point.


For more details about the process (and a few pictures by my wonderful co-worker, Owen Bailey), here's a post I wrote for the Lit House blog: "Behind the Scenes: Creating a Lit House Press broadside."
