New COVID-19-inspired realness from the deep well of design research and communication graphics collecting that is our brother-in-political printing Josh MacPhee. Here's what Josh says about this new Risograph-printed project:
"A couple years ago I started collecting graphics of hands I found on signage out in the world, particularly ones containing two hands. I had an idea to use them to create a zine called Many Hands Make Light Work, but the reality is that almost all of the graphics with two hands were from bathrooms: hand washing instructions. Not so useful for a project about labor, but strangely perfect for one about a pandemic. So here I present 78 instructional icons about washing and drying your hands, collected between 2015–2020, assembled into four 5.5” x 5.5” booklets and an 11” x 17” poster. This is Pound the Pavement #23"
