In Loving Memory of Work

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Book Design / Book Front Covers / 2015

In Loving Memory of Work is a visual record of the UK coal miners' strike of 1984-85, the nation's longest industrial strike. The book collates the political and cultural graphics from the dispute, all created by working class people fighting the Thatcher Government. The book's dust jacket, designed with a bespoke font inspired by placards, is printed using coal dust from an old South Yorkshire mine. The covers feature uniquely placed stickers to evoke the period, just as miners and protesters customised their belongings and placards with stickers associated with the strike.
