|Author||Craig Oldham, ed, forward by Ken Loach|
|Publisher||Rough Trade Books|
|Status||not yet published|
Curated and edited by designer and author Craig Oldham, In Loving Memory of Work tells the story of the UK Miner’s Strike 1984-85 through a record of the visual culture of the working class affected during this pivotal period. Photographs, posters, badges, banners and more are presented here alongside contemporary commentary that creates both a fascinating document of a specific historical period, as well as an exploration of dissent more broadly, and the vital role visual material can play in the radical, even revolutionary, moment. Originally published in 2015, this revised and updated Rough Trade Books edition features a raft of brand-new material to mark the upcoming 40th anniversary of the dispute, celebrating the breadth of working class creativity while simultaneously paying homage to a devastated community. With a forward by Ken Loach.
