Signs of Resistance: A Visual History of Protest in America

$17.95

In hundreds of iconic, smart, angry, clever, unforgettable images, Signs of Resistance chronicles what truly makes America great: citizens unafraid of speaking truth to power.

Two hundred and forty images—from British rule and women’s suffrage to the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War; from women’s equality and Black Lives Matter to the actions of our forty-fifth president and the Women’s March—offer an inspiring, optimistic, and visually galvanizing history lesson about the power people have when they take to the streets and stand up for what’s right. 

Compiled by graphic designer Bonnie Siegler, this collection traces American resistance movements through broadsides, postcards, greeting cards, sculptures, paintings, ads, book covers, magazine covers, handmade-signs, projections, and the back sides of scrap paper. Created by artists, designers, and everyday men, women, and children, the evocative images produce a rich visual history of protest art in America, and of social movements that have shaped the nation.
