Reproduce and Revolt!

Wednesday, April 9th, 2008

This just in from my girl Favianna Rodriguez: the release of her and Josh MacPhee’s book of political graphics.
Get it.
Use it.
Raise a ruckus.

From Favi:
I am very proud to announce the release of Reproduce & Revolt, a book project I have been working on for over 3 years.

Reproduce & Revolt contains an extensive collection of contemporary political graphics collected from around the world, including art from many of today’s most exciting street artists, poster makers and graphic designers. All of these images are granted to the public domain, to be freely used for political purposes, serving as tools to inspire, mobilize, and transform communities.

Activism depends on design to capture imaginations and spread a message. Reproduce and Revolt not only documents some of the best activist design work of the past few years, it shows you how to do it yourself.

Order your copy today by visiting www.JustSeeds.org, an independently owned book store.

I will be selling the book during some presentations in April and May. Visit my website for a full listing of upcoming events. Stay tuned for book release parties and live art jams in June 2008!

Update on the whereabouts of one adopted metal detector:

“Bob” is alive, well, and living happily in David Buuck’s Oakland backyard.

“Tatiana”, the other one, still awaits adoption: for just pennies a day, you too could have a faux walk-thru metal detector of your very own to love and care for! Please consider bringing her into your home, and giving her the love and attention she needs. Better than a Pound Puppy, and infinitely more charming than a Cabbage Patch Kid!

Refresher details from that earlier post are here.
