Whiz letterpress print


Comic by John Porcellino, poem by Stefan Lorenzutti


Letterpress print of Whiz, a three-panel adaptation by legendary comix artist John Porcellino (King-Cat, Thoreau at Walden, South Beloit Journal) of a pup-companioned Stefan Lorenzutti poem about trying to remain existentially grounded while whizzing against a barn beneath the fathomless vault of the night sky:

Don’t take
the stars for granted

step outside
forget your lantern

your fear of
constellations, too.

The letterpress print (14×21.5 cm) was made by Rebekah Smith from a metal plate created in Upstate New York. It was printed and trimmed, in March 2020, at Ugly Duckling in Brooklyn, in an edition of 400 numbered prints.
