A powerful photographic record of an anti-Trump march and the wonderfully creative banners that appeared in it.
On July 13, 2018, Londoners turned out en masse to protest against Donald Trump during his visit to the United Kingdom. The author of this book arrived to participate in the march and took his camera along, just in case there might be something interesting to capture. What he found was nothing short of a Vesuvian eruption of resistance to Trump and his policies. The outrage, disgust, and vitriol directed against Trump was pandemic--but so was the creativity.
This powerful book is a photographic record of that momentous march, and the time, effort, and in many cases money that protestors put into creating their banners. Hundreds of thousands of people turned out--endless seas of all ages, races, genders, and nationalities, and the ingenuity on display is limitless, from simple text banners ("Super Callous Fascist Racist Nasty Lying POTUS"; "Pour me a Covfefe"), to gloriously rendered illustrations (not all of them safe for work), ingenious papier-mâché sculptures, and a LOT of swearing.
