Cultural Writing. Art. VISIONS OF PEACE & JUSTICE contains over 500 reproductions of political posters from the archives of Inkworks Press. Inkworks is a worker cooperative-union shop-green business in Berkeley, CA started in 1974. During the 30+ years of Inkwork's history, the shop has functioned as a pillar of the progressive community in the Bay Area providing printing services including discounts and donations to social movements, community groups, and non-profits. This unique position has allowed Inkworks to accumulate a comprehensive and fascinating archive of beautiful political posters that have been printed on its presses compiled for the first time ever in this important historical document. Whether it's the American Indian Movement, Latin American Solidarity campaigns, Women's Liberation, community-based struggles against environmentalracism, the current efforts to end the war in Iraq, or a broad range of other post-1960s US social movements, VISIONS OF PEACE & JUSTICE records it all through the timeless powerful art of the poster. This title also features essays by David Bacon, Lincoln Cushing, Angela Davis, Anuradha Mittal, Carol Wells, and more.
