American Manifesto

American Manifesto

Minneapolis: Angel Bomb Press, 2014. Softcover. Open edition. Author and printer Todd Thyberg founded Angel Bomb Press after several years working with other printers and does both commercial printing and limited edition books. He writes of his powerful and timely book: "With a tip of the hat to printers and activists of the past, American Manifesto calls the United States citizens to action on a number of national concerns—our country’s health, leadership, and environment, to name a few. This book was devised as a piece of activist artwork; utilizing my vintage presses as they were originally intended: to make important statements about important issues." He continues: "If America really is the best country on earth…why do so many of our people go hungry? Why do our leaders consistently work for corporate interests rather than individuals’ rights? How can our leaders, the media, and we the public still be ignorant to the factual reality of climate change? Why can someone go to prison for a minor drug offense while the people who brought our economy to its knees still receive bonuses? Why are we still taking off our shoes to fly? How can 2/3 of America’s population be overweight when people here and around the world are going hungry? How is it acceptable to make fuel from food? Why don’t we Americans question policies?” Printed on 100% cotton Crane Lettra paper and bound in bright red paper covers. 12-pages, 3-colors, letterpress printed in three colors on a Heidelberg 10x15 Windmill at Angel Bomb. In fine condition. Measures 6 x 8.5 inches. Unpaginated [12 pages]. “. Fine.
