50 New Titles for Recovering the Classics

April 28, 2015

Recovering The Classics is coming back! We're excited to announce a new partnership with the New York Public Library, and the Digital Public Library of America, to make Recovering The Classics covers freely available on ebooks for schools and libraries across the country! 

We're working now to build the campaign with 50 more titles in the collection, and these new partners will allow us to share them with more people than ever before. While we won't be able to offer the new covers as print-on-demand paperbacks like we did before (at least not yet), they will be available as ebooks, plus the prints, apparel, and other products we sell at www.thecreativeactionnetwork.com

We can't wait to see the new work that comes in, and will be featuring new work in an upcoming gallery show at the New York Public Library later in May (more on that soon!) 

So take a look at the 50 new titles below and then get drawing! Upload your designs when you're ready!

It's been two months since the launch of our new book, Posters For A Green New Deal: 50 Removable Posters To Inspire Change! We've loved sharing our art and message with you and it's inspiring that our posters resonate at a time when big bold changes and global cooperation are needed most. Our book is a collaboration with Workman Publishing and 50 independent artists in support of Sunrise Movement, an organization working to slow climate change, and we'll continue to spread our message of art, activism and excitement for a Green New Deal into the future. Without further ado, here's what people are saying about our Green New Deal poster book, which can be purchased on our website and wherever books are sold. Thanks for all the love for our new book everyone!
