Broadsides and Monographs
The Institute initiated publication of a series of broadsides in 1993. Each broadside features a passage from the work of a recognized regional author, combined with the finest craftsmanship in printing, to produce a collector's print--numbered and signed by both author and printer. Each broadside is released in association with a public reading by the author on the NDSU campus.
