Overview

Signal is an ongoing book series dedicated to documenting and sharing compelling graphics, art projects, and cultural movements of international resistance and liberation struggles. Readers will be inspired by not only fine and graphic arts but also political posters, comics, zines, murals, street art, art collectives, documentation of performances, and articles on the often-overlooked but essential roles all of these have played in struggles around the world. Highlights of the fourth volume of Signal include Lincoln Cushing's discussion of the Bay Area Peace Navy's large-scale visual interventions; Tennessee Watson's project made in response to the violence in Juárez; New Zealand's Kotare Trust Poster Archive; the early years of West Germany's militant counterculture; an interview with Max Karl Winkler, book cover designer for Three Continents Press; and the history of Toronto's Punchclock Print Collective.

Reviews

"Offering these graphics to generations far beyond their original audiences, this title is recommended for designers, activists, archivists, and scholars studying protest movements." —Michael Dashkin, Library Journal
