Coffee House Press Broadsides

On View February 9 through June 15, 2013

Coffee House Press traces its history through the turbulence of recent transformations in poetry publishing, from letterpress editions and offset printing to newer technologies. The exhibit—including broadsides, chapbooks and important first editions—provides a capsule view of the trajectory of this independent press (and its precursor Toothpaste Press) renowned for adventurous discoveries, editorial excellence, elegant design and steadfast commitment to writers, readers and poetry.

In addition, during the exhibition period, selections from Poets House's permanent collection will be on view, including recent gifts from artist Mary Frank and the estate of painter Darragh Park.
