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. Included are works by Chase Twichell, Rachel Hadas, Matthew Hittinger, Patricia Smith, Matthea Harvey, Elizabeth Willis, DéLana R. A. Dameron, Leslie Harrison, Mónica de la Torre, Alex Dimitrov, Alex Lemon, and Anna Moschovakis. Produced in a signed limited edition of 100, the broadsides are reserved for the yearly portfolios. The 2009 portfolio features a top opening that closes with a flap displaying the title in a shade of blue. It is light blue with a dark blue stripe down the left and right sides and contains an orange center with various text symbols in a darker shade.
