by Tom Disch (Thomas M. Disch)
Available Format(s): Broadsheet
Prior to Tachyon’s 2008 publication of Thomas Disch’s The Word of God, or, the Holy Writ Rewritten, we published this original broadside sheet of Disch’s recent poem, “Billet-doux.” It is an account of Death’s struggle to find his peers (or even just a friend), told with the delicious black humor that you would have expected from Mr. Disch.
The broadside, limited to 150 signed, numbered copies, was published in honor of Tachyon’s twelfth anniversary (celebrated at a grand soiree at Borderlands Books). It’s a lovely piece, with original art and design by the very talented Barry Barnes at Trained Eye Graphics. It was silk-screened and printed on Folio, an acid-free paper with deckle edges.
