In the revolutionary fervor of 1968, activists beat a path to London's Poster Workshop

From 1968 to 1971, anyone could drop in to the basement in Camden Town, London, and commission a poster from the Poster Workshop. In walked workers on strike, tenants associations, civil rights groups and liberation movements from all over the world. Inspired by the Atelier Populaire (protagonists of May '68), the workshop created posters that could be made quickly to respond to what was needed, on a great number of themes: Vietnam, Northern Ireland, South Africa, housing, workers' rights and revolution. The Poster Workshop existed at an exceptional time. It thrived on the energy generated by the belief that huge changes were possible, through movements for equality, civil rights, freedom and revolution. The posters made there show the extraordinary diversity of those who came to the workshop and provide a microcosm of much that was happening nationally and internationally.

Including many unseen and previously unpublished screen prints by 1960s activists, this book gives a unique perspective on the key political issues of the 1960s as told through the protest posters of artists and activists.
