“The culmination of 12 years of work, this is a massive collection of all of the Celebrate People’s History posters, the 65 that have been printed, and another 45 brand new designs that have yet to be printed yet except for in this book! I’ve also written a history of the project, and there is a great introduction by Rebecca Solnit.
110 posters by over eighty artists pay tribute to revolution, racial justice, women’s rights, queer liberation, labor struggles, and creative activism and organizing.Celebrate People’s History!presents these essential moments—acts of resistance and great events in an often hidden history of human and civil rights struggles—as a visual tour through decades and across continents, from the perspective of some of the most interesting and socially engaged artists working today.” — Josh Macphee
This book is simply amazing. The visuals alone are worth the look, yet each poster contains a part of our past not often celebrated. Anyone who has seen a CPH poster or one of their shows will definitely like this book.
BR member Jared Davidson was lucky enough to have his poster on the New Zealand Federation of Labor (the ‘Red Feds’) featured in the book.
