The culmination of twelve years of work, this is a massive collection of all of the Celebrate People’s History posters as of 2010, the over 85 that have been printed, and another twenty+ new designs that have yet to be printed except for in this book. I’ve also written a history of the project, and there is a great introduction by Rebecca Solnit. I’m really excited about this book, it is my first hardback, and is beautifully printed and designed, really showing off the power of the posters.
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.
