The Holiest of Holies

Well, at least to me it is. This is a broadside of Philip Levine’s poem “What Work Is” by Clamp Down Press. It features an original wood engraving by the artist Michael McCurdy. This is most definitely the crown jewel of my broadside collection. I bought it last summer from Bert Babcock and it arrived safe and sound at my home in Waterloo, ON shortly thereafter. Both the artist and the poet have signed it. I am hoping to get it framed over the holidays.


(This is number 90 of an edition limited to 225 copies)

  1. Yeah, that's a hell of a poem. I hadn't read it in quite a while. Thanks!
