A CODEX Foundation special project: WORDS on the Edge
The CODEX Foundation is pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of WORDS on the Edge, a limited edition portfolio of poetry and lyric prose in broadside format, edited by Peter Rutledge Koch with contributing editors Edwin Dobb, Jane Hirshfield, and Jan Zwicky.
The portfolio, consisting of twenty-six poems and lyrical texts addressing themes of nature and its irresponsible destruction, is a part of an international artist's intervention—EXTRACTION: Art on the Edge of the Abyss. Twenty-six notable poets, artists, and writers have been paired with an equal number of highly regarded letterpress printers from four countries; each has been invited to produce an editioned broadside/print especially for this portfolio. WORDS on the Edge will be sold to raise funds for the greater EXTRACTION project, which is sponsored by the CODEX Foundation as our commitment to art and the environment.
