All Along the Fence A portfolio of poems

collected & printed in honor of Harry Duncan (1916 - 1997)

to mark the centenary of his birth

with an introductory essay by by Michael Peich

about Duncan and his work titled “Aldus in Omaha”


I can’t think of anything else that holds a candle to the recurrent fascination of trying to find suitable graphic forms for poetry, whose multifarious development deserves to be read in the light of our great typographical tradition.

— Harry Duncan

These seventeen poems printed by seventeen printers from across the continent address the concept of time and span a range of styles. Each broadside is 9 x 12 inches printed in an edition of fifty copies, each signed by the poet. Twelve copies of the complete set including the essay printed by letterpress are available for sale in either a clamshell box or paper wrapper. Proceeds from sales will be used to fund a printing intern at Gibraltar Editions.

To order, please email Denise at Gibraltar Editions.
