"These are images you have not seen before but might soon. "Some," the editors note, are "refined, even elegant, others crude, formal, playful, or mock-authoritarian." The anthology includes a fantastic range of styles - from all text to all image to a striking blend of both."

"Where does inspiration come from? It's the first question we typically ask of other artists, and ourselves. Posters for Change: Tear, Paste, Protest, published by Princeton Architectural Press provides a boundless source of ideas and motivation. Reminiscent of medieval insignias, national flags, demonstration banners and encoded quilts, and echoed in the threads of the #YouAreSoVeryLovely project, the quilts from the Social Justice Sewing Academy and the Protest Banner Lending Library, these posters present an alluring combination of formal qualities and concepts that run deep throughout our global society."
