In the playing cards styled box, are 52 broadsides, flat or folded to one common size. Each week in 1976, one of the broadsides was to be printed; each of 52 poems by the day’s young authors was to benefit from an original design layout, employing illustrations, paper, ink colours, typefaces and treatments gathered together specifically to expand and further the message and attitude of the writing. A fantastic collection this amazing fine print sampler was produced, illustrating the dedication of Dreadnaught designers – to be in service to words worthy of reproduction.

In the words of Greg Gatenby, editor: ‘These poems were not published solely to become the hoarded gems of collectors. They are meant to be read, savoured, and shared with other aficionados of the poetic and typographic arts. May you enjoy them for years to come.’
