This fully illustrated anthology showcases key images from Peter Kennard's work as Britain's foremost political artist over the last fifty years.
The book centres around Kennard's images, photomontages and illustrations from protests, year by year, which provoked public outrage; including Israel/Palestine protests, anti-nuclear protests, responses to austerity, climate destruction, and more. Each image is accompanied by captions detailing not only the events in question, but Kennard's approach to the work, including the genesis of the images and the techniques employed.
Ultimately, the book highlights Kennard's extraordinary contribution to political art in the twenty-first century.
