CENTER BROADSIDES 2011 READING SERIES.

Twelve broadsides, each representing the work of an individual poet who gave a reading at The Center for Book Arts in New York, are enclosed in an artistic portfolio that not only provides protection but also appeals to the eye. As part of the Broadside Reading Series, a letterpress printer (sometimes the poet who gave the reading) creates a broadside of one of the author's poems that captures the essence of the verse and the story they told. Included are works by printers Susan Howe, Kimberly McClure, Barbara Henry, Alisa Ochoa, Roni Gross, Delphi Basilicato, Richard O'Russa, James Walsh, Nancy Loeber, Meg Quarton, and Amber McMillan and poets Susan Howe, Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, Elizabeth Zuba, Jessica Elsaesser, Eileen Myles, CA Conrad, Douglas Crase, Dana Ward, John Yau, Paolo Javier, Corina Copp, and Carl Sesar. The broadsides are reserved for the yearly portfolios. The 2011 portfolio features a top opening that closes with a flap displaying the title in orange.
