Berkeley Protest Posters

4973: Berkeley Protest Posters 1970

with an introductory essay by Barry Miles

Paperback with over 150 illustrations in full colour
ISBN 978 1 903427 41 5

The book

4973: Berkeley Protest Posters 1970 reproduces a collection of 136 handmade posters, mostly silkscreened on recycled computer paper, produced by students in the Political Poster Workshop in Berkeley, University of California, to protest against America’s war in Vietnam and the decision of the Nixon administration to take the war into Cambodia. The numbers 4973 in the title were thought to protect the posters from being removed by the Berkeley Police Department.

The book includes an essay by freelance writer Barry Miles, author of the biographies of Frank Zappa, Allen Ginsberg and Paul McCartney, on the importance of the collection and the significance of the posters in the history of protest.
