This book enables non-designers to create graphics for protests. The 46 different stencils in the book, including 2 typefaces, can be combined to create slogans and powerful visual messages. The die-cut stencils are robust enough to be re-used many times. The selection of images has been made to reflect the concerns of our times, such as the environment and the financial system. There are also a number of images taken from the great protest movements of the 20th Century. With a mixture of powerful images and the limitless potential to create slogans, the book is not only fun, but also a serious look at the graphics of protest.
