Protest: A History of Social and Political Protest Graphics

By Liz McQuiston

View Record in IvyCat

Begins in the 1500s with the Protestant Reformation; the emphasis is on the twentieth century, but ample consideration is given to the last twenty years. The perspective is western, perhaps limited by the ephemeral nature of the materials surveyed. An excellent primer on protest graphics, and graphics generally.

Encyclopedia of the Black Arts Movement

Edited by Verner D. Mitchell and Cynthia Davis

View Record in IvyCat

Not just Design – music, literature, and more. This volume defines the Black Arts movement as occurring between the late 1950s and the 1970s. That is arguable. Whether it is truly encyclopedic is also arguable. This highly praised volume is a necessary endeavor, and a provocation to further scholarship.

By the editors of Munchies

View Record in IvyCat

Before her untimely death, our beloved professor Meshele Wynekyn alerted us that students entering the culinary program were interested in the growing market for “edibles.” This is the second of two books we purchased on the topic, the first was a history of cooking with weed. This volume has been highly praised. The recipes begin with basics such as infused butter and oils that can be adapted to many recipes; and move on to more elaborate creations.
