Summary, etc.:
"Paper Politics: Socially Engaged Printmaking Today is a major collection of contemporary politically and socially engaged printmaking. This book showcases print art that uses themes of social justice and global equity to engage community members in political conversation. Based on an art exhibition which has traveled to a dozen cities in North America, Paper Politics features print work by over 200 international artists; an eclectic collection by both activist and non-activist printmakers who have felt the need to respond to the monumental trends and events of our times. This book is a tour of the many modalities of printing hand: relief, intaglio, lithography, serigraph, collagraph, monotype, and photography. In addition to these techniques, included are more traditional media used to convey political thought, finely crafted stencils and screen prints intended for wheat pasting in the street."--BOOK JACKET.
