I have one from CBA of a poem by Rigoberto and it's really beautiful (the broadside and the poem!). They do great work. Ditto on one by Stephanie Lenox that I *had*, but that was very sadly damaged during a move from apt. to apt.

I'd like to get my hands on an Eduardo C. broadside too.

The Academy of American Poets has one (signed!) of Donald Justice's "Gold Light in Certain Old Paintings" that I have long had my eye on.

The first number of the ad-hoc Letras Latinas broadside series is by ECC. Get in touch with me if you'd like one, Matthew.
