Florida Atlantic University's digital collection: "The
Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here" Broadsides collection brings
this historic suite of 133 printed literary broadsides to South
Florida. Each is truly a work of art. All are printed
letterpress, usually from handset metal or wood type. Some
feature original relief prints, some are printed on handmade
paper; all are made with the passion of artists who have
something to say.
This historic Al-Mutanabbi Street Coalition project––one of
only ten in the world––will remain at Florida Atlantic
University Libraries, and will be permanently housed at the
Arthur & Mata Jaffe Center for Book Arts, 3rd floor east of
the Wimberly Library.
