For our upcoming exhibition Finally Got The News: The Printed Legacy of the U.S. Radical Left, 1970–1979 we are producing our most ambitious publication yet! The book that accompanies the exhibition will collect almost 100 images of materials included in the show, original essays by 14 contributors, and a round table discussion amongst a broad collection of producers of propaganda in the 1970s.
This book will provide over 200 full-color pages of full-color reproductions accompanied by text, and will be available in spring 2017. Pre-orders will be shipped shortly after that date.
This is not going to be your average, slim exhibition catalog, but an impressive stand-alone document of the 70s radical Left. The more money we raise, the more pages we can add, which means the more amazing reproductions of rare and important political documents and social movement culture.
We are pre-selling the book for $20 plus postage. If you order 5 copies, we’ll give you a great deal—$60, so $12/book!
(Unfortunately individual international shipping is not available for this pre-order. It’s just too expensive! If you are in another country and would like to buy bulk copies, please email us at info@interferencearchive dot com to make arrangements.)
