Robert Bringhurst's New World Suite Number Three, a Poem in Four Movements for Three Voices, was our 30th Anniversary Publication.
This innovative interdisciplinary work intersects at the pinnacle of creative writing, graphic design, book art, and performance. This is a poem for three voices, meant to be read by three people at once. In addition to the poem, the author has written an afterword articulating the evolution of his polyphonic poetry, documenting for the reader a history of this definitive edition.
The edition is 75 numbered copies inclusive of five Artist Proofs produced. There are only 25 copies for sale by the Center.
