WORDS on the Edge
On display through Oct 03, 2020 at the New Mexico History Museum
The WORDS on the Edge portfolio consists of twenty-six poems and lyrical texts that address themes of nature and its irresponsible destruction.
Twenty-six notable poets, artists, and writers were paired with an equal number of highly regarded letterpress printers from four countries, and each pair produced a limited-edition broadside for the portfolio. The Palace Press is represented in the collection by Arthur Sze’s poem, Black Center.
Some of the poets represented in the portfolio are Margaret Atwood, Wendell Berry, Peter Coyote, Natalie Diaz, Joy Harjo, Robert has, Jane Hirshfieldd, Marie Howe, Barry Lopez and Gary Snyder.
The complete set of broadsides will be on display in the museum’s Meem Room.
