Against Creation

Against Creation

In November of 2007, the UICB joined the Writers' Workshop in celebrating the reading of poet Donald Revell. To mark the occasion Visiting Printer Sara Langworthy, in collaboration with students and faculty, designed and printed a broadside of a poem selected by Revell, “Against Creation.”

The broadside is an edition of 175, printed on Gasen Natural Japanese paper from hand set Van Dijck and Bembo types in the UICB collection. The image was made from a series of photopolymer plates processed from hand-altered negatives.

The UICB is happy to offer 55 of these prints, all signed by Revell and numbered, for sale to support the Center's studios. The edition is limited, so order now while supplies last. All proceeds will go toward the UICB type and equipment fund.
