These 659 posters, assembled for the first time in one album, offer a veritable journey through Québec's social history and political imagination of the past four decades. This book is the result of a collaboration between the founders of the Centre de recherche en imagerie populaire (CRIP) and the publisher of Cumulus Press. This collection of union, political, community, feminist, sociocultural and anti-globalization posters brings to our collective memory the popular struggles that have marked the history of social movements in Québec. It gives a voice to those who, through the strength of their commitment and creativity, have contributed to a more humane, just and democratic world. These images taken from the streets are much more than a mirror of our combined aspirations: they are an invitation to move ever forward. The posters portray demanding, accusatory, irreverent and hopeful actions and offer as many original-sometimes radical-proposals on how to improve the lives of our society's downtrodden, mistreated, exploited and marginalized groups and individuals.
