New Broadside of “Keller and the Rabbits”

September 16, 2013

kellerrabbitsSome of you may be familiar with the deluxe limited-edition broadsides produced by Lavendier Books of Rhode Island. My first venture with them was “A Burglar’s Eye View of Greed,” an op-ed newspaper piece of mine that got its second wind as a Lavendier broadside (and appears anew in Subterranean Press’s forthcoming Catch and Release). Then I wrote an original Matthew Scudder vignette for Lavendier, “Mick Ballou Looks at the Blank Screen,” and that at once became part of the Scudder canon, and appears in The Night and the Music—and in Catch and Release as well.

Now the last chapter of Hit Parade, the brief “Keller and the Rabbits,” is on offer as a Lavendier broadside. Here’s Mark Lavendier’s announcement thereof:

“Lavendier Books is pleased to announce another offering from NY Times bestselling author Lawrence Block. Titled “Keller and the Rabbits”, this short-short story is a study in sudden death by literature’s favorite hit man. A self-contained short story, printed by letterpress on quality cotton rag stock, this piece features an original woodcut illustration by artist Allen Avery. This broadside is a unique piece of mixed media art, looks great under glass and framed on a wall, and makes a perfect highlight for any Lawrence Block collection.

“The run of 100 standard and 26 deluxe copies is officially sold out, but the publisher is making available a small number of overruns on each edition. These out-of-series unnumbered copies, marked “PC” as Publisher’s Copies, are otherwise identical to the in-series copies. The standard broadsides are printed in one color [black] and hand-signed by the author; the deluxe are two-colour [black & red] and hand-signed by both author and illustrator. The price, $30 for the standard broadside, $80 for the deluxe, includes free domestic shipment by  US Priority Mail. Please contact the publisher at or for ordering or international shipping options.”
