LGNE 30th Anniversary Broadside

The LGNE (Letterpress Guild of New England) will be having their 30th Anniversary Poster & Broadside Exhibition at the Arsenal Center for the Arts, Watertown MA.  Seeing this was a rare event, I just had to submit one or two broadsides.

This one is called “Death Haiku”, after the famous haiku by Matsuo Bashou (Japan, 1644-1694) apparently written a short time before he died.

Tremble, oh my gravemound / in time my cries will be /only this autumn wind

Tsuka mo ugoke / waga naku koe wa / aki no kaze        (6-7-5)
