Red-orange with bright gilt spine titles, dust jacket, 23.5 by 31 cm, 516 pp., illus. Light bumping to the lower corners and a tiny nick in the cloth on the bottom edge of the back cover. The interior is clean and bright with no marks. The dust jacket has light edge wear with a couple of tiny closed edge tears, very light scuffing here and there, and some wrinkling at the head of the spine panel. Heavily-illustrated, this is one of the most in-depth presentations of the artistic and social developments of murals. Included is a wonderful press image of a graffiti mural featuring Che Guevara in Chicago (see this list’s cover image). The print measures 26 by 20.2 cm and has several notes, dates and a press caption affixed to the back with some light creases and wear (Chicago Sun-Times, 1980). Also included is a 1985 flyer promoting an open house to benefit the painting of “A New Revolutionary Mural” by Susan Greene on the front of The Socialist Bookstore in San Francisco: “it will celebrate the struggles of working people and the oppressed around the world.” The benefit featured the author of this book, Alan Barnett, and his slide show on “Recent Liberation Art of Latin America. The flyer measures 21.6 by 27.8 cm and shows only faint wear and a very light crease in the upper right corner. (os) Dust jacket present. First Edition.
