The Beautiful Fires

Here is a wonderful broadside of Jack Gilbert's poem "The Great Fires" I purchased last month. The run was limited to only 40 numbered copies with original calligraphy by Julio Granda. This 12 X 17 inch serigraph is silkscreen printed in 7 colors on Okawara rice paper by Jon Ahlen. The typeface is Optima Medium-Bold. The print is signed by the artist and the printer. Always a favorite poem of mine, I now have another reason to smile every time I read it.
