A small glimmer of hope and enjoyment arrived in the mail a little while back, a copy of the new political poster book by Jo Rippon and Amnesty International,
The Art of Protest. The US edition was published by Imagine! in early 2020 and features a number of Justseeds artists and fellow travelers, including Micah Bazant, Ashley Lukashevsky, Favianna Rodriguez, Rommy Torrico, Mary Tremonte, and myself (Josh MacPhee).
We’re in good company, with a great collection of classic protest posters by the likes of Carlos Cortéz, John Heartfield, Kathe Köllwitz, Ricardo Levins Morales, Ben Shahn, and the Silence=Death Collective.
