AKA: 9 x 21: An Anthology of 9 Illustrated Posters by 21 Alaskans

Editor's note: ​this portfolio contains a series of "broadsides," nine leaves of illustrated poetry-posters. It was published by Fireweed Press, their first publication from Juneau. An example from a library has the portfolio and its pages bound in a hard outer cover, likely for dexterity. In addition to Dale's contribution, the portfolio also includes illustrations by Diana Tillion and Rie Muñoz, among others. A very limited edition, it's not known how many copies were produced and is exceptionally scarce to find.
