Ilya Kaminsky Broadside Available [Repost]

Tupelo Press has a limited edition, dual-language broadside of Ilya Kaminsky’s “Author’s Prayer” from his collection Dancing in Odessa. Each numbered broadside has been printed by hand on Rives Heavyweight, a French mould-made 100% cotton paper. Typesetting, woodcut, and printing by Josef Berry in Free Union, Virginia, January 2011. Both unsigned and signed copies are available. You can also listen to a recording of Ilya Kaminksy’s reading of “Author’s Prayer” from the website of “From the Fishouse,” a nonprofit that promotes the aural tradition of poetry, and on YouTube, both see and hear Kaminsky reading at the Berkeley Lunch Poems series.

Additional Note from TP: “Because we can only pray for art, but can actually do something tangible about hatred, injustice and the sufferings of children, Tupelo Press will donate 10% of every dollar received for this magnificent broadside to a worthy nonprofit organization. This month we will donate to Join with Joplin, a program designed to raise funds to assist seniors displaced or injured in the recent Joplin, Missouri tornado.”

[NP Note: I ordered a copy of this broadside, and it is GORGEOUS.]
