In 2016, scholar, writer, and Indigenous literature advocate, Daniel Heath Justice, started the twitter project #HonouringIndigenousWriters:
This is a poster of that project to share with everyone in advance of the next Indigenous Literary Studies Association 2017 Conference beginning on June 18. It will shortly be available on Daniel's web site as well.
The posters are available to download below. I really enjoyed typesetting the names for this. Some names I recognized, and others still new to me.
TABLOID SIZE POSTERS
This poster is in English, French, and Inuktitut, and is 11 x 17 inches. If you have an additional language that you'd like the poster translated into, just write me at the contact link at the top of the blog, and I'll make a poster and upload it here.
Because the poster is black, right to the edge of the paper (it's a full bleed), you might want to print it on 12x18" paper, if it's available to you. Otherwise, just choose "fit to print" in your print dialogue box, and your poster will just be printed a little smaller than tabloid. Then trim.
LARGE FORMAT POSTERS
These large format posters are 18 x 28". They are also downloadable and can be printed at a print shop that offers large format printing. You will need to trim the poster. Fed Ex Office can print one for about $40, but check with your local print shop, if you have one, as they are often family run, and the prices are usually better.
If you live in the Vancouver area, you can order one from me for $18 and pick it up at Selector's Records at 8 E.Pender before July 1.
