Anarchist bookfair poster

August 8th, 2009 · post by Edd · Make a comment

I designed the poster for this year’s London anarchist bookfair. I didn’t really have a brief, so I decided on an invasion of the city, since I was drawing it in the run up to the G20 protests. Several months after drawing it I’m not really sure why there’s only eight people invading, but I guess that’s the way it goes. I’m fairly happy with how it’s turned out, though the process was fairly tortuous, I took myself down at least five blind alleys and did two other ‘finished’ posters before I realised what direction I needed to be taking.

I printed up some screenprints for the bookfair so if people are interested they can buy one on the day, with the money going to the bookfair’s costs. You can also pick up posters and fliers from Freedom Bookshop to hand around to publicise the day. As the people organising the event say, “We need help publicising the bookfair far and wide this year. We want to get more people along to find out what we all do and say. We want to aim at those who may not have heard much about anarchism, apart from the rubbish on the TV. We want to start making anarchism a threat again. So, if you can help by taking leaflets or posters to distribute (especially in London) please email us at letting us know how many you want and we will get them to you.”

This year’s London Anarchist Bookfair will be on Saturday 24th October 2009 from 10am to 7pm at the Queen Mary and Westfield College.
