Silas House, serving as Kentucky’s Poet Laureate from 2023 to 2025, crafted the evocative poem “Those Who Carry Us” to honor Governor Andy Beshear’s second inauguration.

Presented at the ceremony on December 12, 2023, the poem was immortalized in a limited edition of 300 broadsides. Each piece, hand-set in Cloister Lightface and printed in two colors on a Vandercook No. 4 press, is numbered and autographed by House himself.

This project marks the second collaboration between Deborah Kessler of October Press in Lexington, KY, and Gray Zeitz of Larkspur Press in Monterey, KY, each printed on exquisite Somerset Book paper.
