A print that combines a literary passage with an image is called a broadside. Historically, they were the most common form of printed material, used for news, proclamations, advertising, and ballads.

For Angel Robert Marx combined a poem by Al Poulin (1938-1996), founder of BOA Press, and his own etching.
