On November 16, NYC's the Poetry Project will present the theatrical world premiere of John Ashbery's "Litany" in collaboration with FOLDER and performance group Small Theaters Around The Country in the sanctuary at St. Mark's Church in the East Village.

We are here previewing a few special items being prepared for that event:

A small number of signed copies of John Ashbery's new book Commotion of the Birds, out November 1.

Three broadsides with excerpts from "Litany" being prepared by three artist/printer teams:

Dara Cerv and NSFW Presse
Todd Colby and Richard O'Russa
Christine Hou and Damask Press.

There will be 40 copies of each design printed. We are making 5 of each available for preorder for $20!


What is FOLDER?

FOLDER is a poetry journal which presents the work of one poet monthly.
All content will live in our online home in perpetuity as well as in one-time yearly print runs of 700 copies printed by McNaughton & Gunn and hand-numbered.


What is a broadside?

As Wikipedia has it: "A broadside is a large sheet of paper printed on one side only. Historically, broadsides were posters, announcing events or proclamations, or simply advertisements. Today, broadside printing is done by many smaller printers and publishers as a fine art variant, with poems often being available as broadsides, intended to be framed and hung on the wall."
