5.0 out of 5 stars America hungers, 16 July 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: You Back the Attack!: Remixed War Propaganda (Paperback)
This book of posters for the early days of the 21st century paints a truer picture of where we're at than all the column inches that have been written about the US's new pre-emptive foreign policy strategy in the past two years. Only as Micah knows from the inside track (Panama City, 1989) it's not exactly new, this strategy, it's just more overt now. Wake up good people of America - karma vipaka comes to us all in the end. Don't let's blow it now by going the easy, mindless route of fascism. And to anyone who's got even half a brain cell - let's follow Micah's lead and get creative. As Kurt Vonnegut notes in his excellent forward, we've got to be prepared to think some very hard thoughts - the psychos may indeed have taken over the asylum. What are we going to do about it? Sit back and take it? I don't think so.

This review is from: You Back the Attack!: Remixed War Propaganda (Paperback)
This book of spot-on political posters really seems to have polarised reviewers so it must be doing something right. Of the two hundred that Micah Wright has produced (you can see them all on his website, antiwarposters) forty have been selected to go with some very relevant text from the Center for Constitutional Rights.

I think these remixed posters work so well because the author has taken the trouble to put his headlines in the same typography as the originals (which are reproduced in the back of the book) and to see historical graphics blended with a contemporary political point really hits you between the eyes. The surprising thing to me is that this simple, brilliant design idea has not been done before but maybe it was the events of the last two years that galvanised one person to put his point-of-view across with such deadly accuracy.
