Protest!: A History of Social and Political Protest Graphics
Protest! A History of Social and Political Protest Graphics collates the best examples of the posters, prints and other graphics that have been used for political protest throughout history to the present day. The book begins in the 16th century with the Reformation, when images could first be produced in multiples. It then travels through decades and centuries of graphics: protesting against the miseries of war; satirising the foibles of royalty, politicians, religions, and society in general; calling for an end to racial discrimination and apartheid; demanding freedom from tyranny and dictatorships; struggling for LGBTQ+ rights; and, finally, attending to 21st-century concerns and Trumpisms.
