From Keith Haring to Extinction Rebellion, the civil rights movement to Black Lives Matter, what does a revolution look like? Discover the power of words and images in this thought-provoking look at protest art by highly acclaimed artivist De Nichols.

From the psychedelic typography used in “Make Love Not War” posters of the ’60s to the solitary raised fist, some of the most memorable and striking protest artwork from across the world and throughout history deserves a long, hard look. Readers can explore each piece of art to understand how color, symbolism, technique, and typography play an important role in communication. Guided by activist, lecturer, and speaker De Nichols’s powerful narrative and stunningly illustrated by a collaboration of young artists, this volume also has plenty of tips and ideas for creating your own revolutionary designs. This is a fully comprehensive look at the art of protest.

One of my favourite things to shop for during the holidays are stocking stuffers. Finding small, unexpected gifts to surprise my loved ones with is like the best kind of treasure hunt. I like including everything from the silly to the more practical, and one thing I particularly love to give are enamel pins. Whether you choose to display them on a bag, jacket or display pennant, they can be a fun way to celebrate and show off what you love, and today’s book-themed pins are no exception. If you’re struggling to find the perfect present for the reader or writer on your list this holiday season, the 40 pins featured in this small business gift guide might make a great place to start!

Hi! I’m Jen! I’m a thirty-something introvert who loves nothing more than the cozy comfort of home and snuggling my two rescue cats, Pepper and Pancakes. I also enjoy running, jigsaw puzzles, baking and everything Disney. Few things bring me more joy than helping a reader find the right book for them!
