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, each author creates a broadside of one of their poems that captures the essence of the verse and the story they are telling. Includes works by Aracelis Girmay, Erica Hunt, Ada Limon, Evie Shockley, Christina Davis, Edward Hirsch, Jason Labbe, Nick Flynn, Kathy Fagan, Charles Bernstein, Stacy Szymaszek and Elena Georgiou. Produced in a signed limited edition of 100, the broadsides are reserved for the yearly portfolios. The 2008 portfolio features a center opening that fastens with lime green grosgrain ribbon. The boards are covered in paper printed with a design of random rectangles in shades of lime green with the title in red on the right front. The front cover flaps open to reveal a pop-up box that contains the individual broadsides.
