This is not a sky Broadside

Publication Date: November 2014


Jessica Piazza, “Gun”

BLP Chapbook Broadside Series

5.5 x 8.5 Natural Cardstock, Fine Paper Trim

Each BLP broadside is handmade & unique – the design and trim will vary a bit broadside by broadside. These beautiful art objects are handmade in a limited edition to accompany the release of each new BLP chapbook.


This is not a sky, and these are not ekphrastic poems. Jessica Piazza has imbued them with the very qualities they observe in the works they address: each is “an unfoldment” and collectively “their imagined new lives are more real than the truth.”
-H. L. Hix, author of As Much As, If Not More Than
