A collection of strong visual messages to express politically and socially engaged content.
This book is a visual guide that collects 400 downloadable copyright-free images of a social and political nature that can be used in T-shirts, posters, fanzines, stationery, and many other supports. Presenting complex ideas in a straight to the point way, these images make us reflect on the contradictions of this world. Accompanied by thought-provoking texts, they are a reaction to issues such as racism, drugs, terrorism, inequality, poverty, war, destruction, life and death, freedom, war and peace, smoking, and animal rights, among others. This brilliant work not only raises important questions about today's society in general but is also a superb illustration of pure graphic design with a political conscience. It is an ideal working tool and reference for professionals and students, or anyone with a keen interest in visual culture and communication. With a foreword by Liz McQuiston and texts by Steven Heller, Bettina Richter, Avram Finkelstein, Sarah Corbett, Fons Hickmann, Lincoln Cushing, King ADZ, and others.Author:

About the Author
UN MUNDO FELIZ (A Brave New World) is a Spanish collective of designers, led by Sonia Díaz and Gabriel Martínez, interested in the creation, production and distribution of both socially and politically committed images. Its aim is to bring them to a public space, from the street to the World Wide Web, and to generate a collective space where designers can foster discussion on ideas and non-commercial issues.
