Visions Of Peace And Justice: San Francisco Bay Area: 1974-2007. Over 30 Years Of Political Posters From The Archives Of Inkworks Press
Visions of Peace & Justice contains over 400 full color reproductions of political posters from the archives of Inkworks Press. Inkworks is a worker collective-union shop-green business in Berkeley, CA started in1974. During the 30+ years of Inkworks’ history, the shop has functioned as a pillar of the progressive community in the Bay Area providing printing services to social movements, community groups, and non-profits. This unique position has allowed Inkworks to accumulate a comprehensive and fascinating archive of beautiful political posters that have been printed on its presses and compiled for the first time in this important historical document. Whether it’s the American Indian Movement, Latin American Solidarity campaigns, Women’s Liberation, community-based struggles against environmental racism, the current efforts to end the war in Iraq, or a broad range of other post-1960s US social movements, Visions of Peace & Justice records it all through the timeless powerful art of the poster. There are even a couple from the Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair!
Features David Bacon, Lincoln Cushing, Angela Davis, Anuradha Mittal, Carol Wells, and more contribute essays to round it all out.
