All of Us or None: Social Justice Posters of the San Francisco Bay Area (Heyday Books, 2012)

Conceived as a companion catalog to Michael Rossman’s legendary All of Us or None poster archive, which was recently acquired by and is currently on display at the Oakland Museum of California, this book ends up being so much more. Like all the best political posters, the book—curated and contextualized by archivist, historian, and all-around poster don Lincoln Cushing—manages to achieve that crucial balance of being both visually stunning and intellectually engaging.

I highly recommend All of Us Or None—it’s a wonderful resource. Also, if you’re in the Bay Area, you should definitely head out to the Oakland Museum to check out the show in person; it runs through August 19 so there is still time.
