Type: A Tool For Change

The late sixties were among the most politically charged times the modern world has ever seen. With nearly twenty countries protesting for labor rights, women’s rights, student rights, civil rights, and against war, the world was transformed into a playground for unrest. Each country found different methods of utilizing typography to revolt, some preferred screen printing while others hand drew their signage.

This book explores the correlation between typography and political change through images and documents the methods used by protestors during this time.
