Each has been invited to produce an editioned broadside/print. Proceeds from sales of the portfolio go toward raising funds for the CODEX Foundation’s special project, EXTRACTION: Art on the Edge of the Abyss.
Portfolio dimensions: 48 x 32 x 3 cm. Portfolio comprises title leaf (with additional text, “The Edge,” by Robert Bringhurst on verso), table of contents leaf, with colophon on verso, and 26 broadsides. Broadsides printed by various printers; each is autographed by the author, some are numbered and/or autographed by the printers, as well.
