NOEL BLACK: WATCHMEN IN THE RYE
This broadside is from about a year ago, but now we’re finally getting it up online. The colophon (printed on the back) reads:
“This broadside was designed and printed by Aaron Cohick, with assistance from Matvei Yankelevich, at The Press at Colorado College, for the occasion of Noel Black’s reading as part of the Visiting Writers Series at Colorado College on April 5th, 2012. The poem originally appeared in a chapbook, Moby K. Dick, and a full-length book, Uselysses, both published by Ugly Duckling Presse in 2011. The artwork for this broadside was adapted from the graphic novel Watchmen (written by Alan Moore and drawn by Dave Gibbons), published by DC Comics in 1986. Printed from lead type and photopolymer plates on Rives BFK in an edition of 40.”
Yes, it’s all letterpress.
There are some more copies for sale. The cost is $20 plus shipping. If you’d like to purchase one, please email Aaron Cohick, Printer of The Press at CC, at aaron[dot]cohick[at]coloradocollege[dot]edu.
