Friends and Writers,
I am offering a special gift to those who pre-order Our Day in the Labyrinth by the end of TODAY: A one-time print run postcard broadside sent to you, with a hand-written thank you from me! Please reserve your copy via online pre-order today (just click here)! $12.49 plus $2.99 shipping.
Or, I can take orders directly and have the press ship them to you. Please email me at kate (at) kateasche (dot) com to arrange!
But what *is* a broadside, anyway? A broadside is a short bit of literature–a quote or a poem–designed on the page to be displayed as a visual work; the text is often paired with a visual image. These postcard broadsides are printed on acid-free archival bamboo fiber paper with archival gallery ink. The are delightfully miniature, perfect for your fridge or bulletin board!
Here are two LOW-RESOLUTION samples of the several designs I will be creating:
