A unique, beautiful print from the Academy's archive of broadsides. This letterpress print features the following poem by Mark Strand and is signed by the poet;

 

The Beach Hotel
Oh, look, the ship is sailing without us! And the wind
Is from the east, and the next ship leaves in a year.
Let's go back to the beach hotel where the rain never stops,
Where the garden, green and shadow-filled, says, in the rarest
Of whispers, "Beware of encroachment." We can stroll, can visit
The dead decked out in their ashen pajamas, and after a tour
Of the birches, can lie on the creaking bed, watching
The ancient moonlight creep across the floor. Th ewindow panes
Will shake, and waves of darkness, cold, uncalled-for, grim, 
Will cover us. And into the close and mirrored catacombs of sleep
We'll fall, and there in the faded light discover the bones, 
The dust, the bitter remains of someone who might have been
Had we not taken his place.
Designed and illustrated by Dean Bernstein at the Perpetua Press, May 1997. Measures 12 7/8"W x 9.25"L.
