Our Revolution, A Future to Believe [Art Binding].

New York: St. Martin’s Press, 2016. First Edition. Hardcover. "I don't often get to touch on politics in my line of work. Bernie Sanders is an inspiration, not only in his message, not only backing up his standpoints with policy, but is, and has been, fighting for the people his entire career. As a person who lives in constant pain, and whose healthcare costs reflect that, his stance on health insurance as a human right resonates greatly with me. This book follows his campaign trail and puts forth the ideals he ran on: income equality, health care for all, higher education as a human right, racial justice, environmental justice, criminal justice reform, immigration reform, getting money out of politics, truth, love, compassion, and solidarity, among many others--and their implementation. I chose to do a utilitarian binding on this: no gold, nothing flashy, a simple arts-and-crafts design tooled in blind, done quickly but with elegance. The endpapers are plain, they don't need to be fancy. "A Future to Believe In" was Bernie's campaign message, and "The Struggle Continues" is the progressive answer to any election, any vote, or any compromise, win or lose—the struggle continues. And, of course, he ran a campaign without super PACs, with an average campaign donation of $27, the number used where one would find a volume number or a date." [artist statement].
