Wake up, the World is on Fire!, 2009

At age 93, the iconic Lawrence Ferlinghetti has a lot to say about how we can embrace the horizon that awaits us. Wake up, the World is on Fire! is a letterpress broadside featuring lines from Ferlinghetti's prophetic book, Poetry As Insurgent Art. The work, signed by Ferlinghetti, includes a photograph of the poet. The broadside was collaboratively designed and printed by Cathy DeForest, Susan Rouzie, and Derek Pyle while terrorism raged in various parts of the world and the Arab Spring and the Occupy Movement were formulating. Ferlinghetti's words offer sanity and guidance for a world gone wild. Designed and printed by Cathy DeForest, Susan Rouzie, and Derek Pyle.

Dimensions: 11 x 17 inches, 28 x 43 centimeters

Letterpress printed in three colors. Photograph of Ferlinghetti by Chris Felver, also letterpress printed.
