Reproduce & Revolt is the kind of book that will pay for itself ten times over. It's a kind of art tool box for activists who need help designing protest signs or fliers. As they say "Creative, effective designs are one critical one critical way to communicate our messages of social injustice." 

Published by soft skull press and edited by Josh MacPhee and Favianna Rodriguez, R&V features more than 500 posters, stencils and prints dealing with topics such as animal cruelty, immigration, war/peace, inspiration, transportation, the environment and many more all to be freely used without any copyright infringement.

Readers can use designs found in the book to create posters, signs and fliers to spread the word about social injustice and to help them attract more attention with captivating visual designs. With artist from all over the world including Chris Stain, Juan R, Fuentes, Eric Drooker, Rini Templeton, Gustavo Alberto Garcia Vaca and many more. Also included in R&V is some background history of the "reproducible political graphic" along with a step by step break down that guides readers in creating their own art or reproducing the art found in the book.  The entire book is in English and Spanish which will make it more appealing and available to a diverse crowd. The art work included also ranges from the serious to comical depending on the topic, artist and nature of the art. R&V also includes guidelines on how to use the graphics if readers plan to alter them or use them to promote an event or sale. For that reason there is an index in the back of the book with the contact information for every artist featured in R&V.

Readers are encouraged to reach out to the artist themselves for more information about their art or if they plan to use their art in selling or promoting a sale, to ask for permission before using them. R&V mostly caters to people who may not have great artistic talent but are active in raising awareness on political issues in their communities. The book also also acts as a type of guide to help those who have always wanted to protest, but just didn't know how to go about it. R&V has a tremendous collection of usable art that makes it a must have book for any fans of political graphic art  or for those who want to create more compelling and eye catching protest signs/fliers.  Reproduce & Revolt is now available in book stores or at counterpoint press.
