Alison and Evie Broadside print
Alison Saar has collaborated with poet Evie Shockley (LA Times Book Award and Pulizter Prize nominee) to create a broadside letterpress print, facilitated by printer Leslie Ross-Robertson, Wavelength Press.
For Shockley’s recent collection of poems, “semiautomatic,” Saar contributed a series of drawings for the chapter “the topsy suite” with writings based on the character of Topsy from “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” That collaborative energy led to this print, which features imagery by Saar, and words by Shockley.
