Cover typeface by Wei Huang
Oliver Marchant’s book, tracing trajectories of artistic activism in theatre, dance, performance and public art. The design is straightforward, with a few quirks.
The cover, using Wei’s Arielvetica, relates to Public Movement’s Positions, referenced in the text, in which two blocks of people are constantly formed and reformed into different groupings according to positions – gay / straight, socialism / capitalism, men / women – called out through a pair of megaphones.
