Broadside (Wayzgoose Press) ; 45.

Summary

Handset letterpress type (Gill 36pt) and linocut broadside printed on Magnani Incisioni 220gsm paper in several colours. The poster shows a series of tally marks (clustered in groups of five) printed in red against a large black rectangle, which takes the form of a blackout roller window blind. The last row of tally marks tails off and the area below is blank. The blind extends beyond the top edge, and has a cord pull at the bottom, which runs from the centre through the three lines from the Dylan Thomas poem. The artists' signatures and publication information appear across the bottom edge.
