Overview

A postcard book of radical, underground art from American Book Award winner Eric Drooker

Disguised as a book of innocent postcards, Slingshot is a dangerous collection of Eric Drooker's most notorious posters. Plastered on brick walls from New York to Berlin, tattooed on bodies from Kansas to Mexico City, Drooker's graphics continue to infiltrate and inflame the body politic. Drooker is the author of two graphic novels and a collaborator with Beat poet Allen Ginsberg. His provocative art has appeared on countless posters and book covers, and his hard-edged graphics are a familiar sight on street corners throughout the world.

Reviews

"Drooker's old Poe hallucinations of beauteous deathly reality transcend political hang-up and fix our present American dreams." —Allen Ginsberg

"When the rush of war parades are over, a simple and elegant reminder of humanity remains—in the work of Eric Drooker." —Sue Coe
