Back in 2018 I began digging through boxes and boxes of old files and artwork, and I unearthed a wealth of graphics I had produced protesting police brutality and lack of accountability. I used that body of work to create Total Control (Pound the Pavement #20), which has since sold out.
I wanted to go back in and work with these images again and continue to give them new lives, so I created this poster book, with reworkings of 18 of the graphics I created over a 25 year period between 1995–2020. They follow the arc of my thinking around—and representation of—the intersecting issues of police violence, institutional racism (bordering on genocide), surveillance, corruption, and more.
This book contains two pages of front matter, 18 risograph-printed posters, a die-cut and printed front cover, and a chipboard back cover. Each poster is perforated and intended to be pulled out and displayed, copied, or otherwise used and re-used.
All of the printing, collating, perforating, and binding of the 100 copies of the book were done at Eureka! House in Kingston, NY.
