This broadside was inspired by Paige A. C. B. Balter’s poem, The Floor Creaked, which was written during a Fall Write Around Portland workshop in 2003. The broadside was designed and printed by Diane Jacobs of Scantron Press in 2009. Inspired to print white ink on black paper, Diane pressure printed the first run in titanium white. Text is handset wood type and the darkened sun is a linoleum cut that went thru the press at least 5 times in order to get the perfect hue. Everything was printed letterpress on a Universal I Vandercook in celebration of Write Around Portland’s 10th year Anniversary.letterpress 19" x 12.5" 2009
