Raise your fist!

This untitled work from Hunter Saxony III (a.k.a. the Last Black Calligrapher in SF)'s 2020 Nia Wilson/Say Her Name/No Silence series is one of 500 color reproductions in Letterform Archive's galvanizing new release, Strikethrough: Typographic Messages of Protest—published to accompany the exhibition on view now in San Francisco. Silas Munro writes, "Protestors have long used typography to strike through myriad forms of oppression. Their urgent, often handmade signs, placards and posters put bigots on notice that their hate has been marked for correction. Curated in the wake of the 2020 police murders of Black Americans, including George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, and on the upswell of ensuing Black Lives Matter protests, this exhibition and book showcase examples of typographic anger and agency from across moments, places and movements—as it is seen in the streets, on the printed page and even on the bodies of demonstrators. … Our hope is that Strikethrough will call out for typographic responses that echo for years to come. What might future conversations around human life look like typeset in a refrain for dignity, safety and equality for all?"
