These gorgeous broadsides will be available at Parachute 2012!
Parachute has created a broadside folio in collaboration with two New York letterpress artists to illuminate the words of poets Walt Whitman and Muriel Rukeyser. Barbara Henry of Harsimus Press designed the Walt Whitman broadside (11 x17) wherein he writes that Coney Island was one of his favorite places. Chris Fritton of Western New York Center for Book Arts designed the Muriel Rukeyser broadside (11x17) wherein she writes, "Coney Island, Coney Island...Let me see. Let me hear. Let me know what is real. "
Both are printed on high quality paper. Each are $15 and for sale as a set at $20. Edition of 200.
Hey get it get it!
