"Redback Graphix will bowl readers over with colour and edgy social comment. From 1979-94 design and screen printing studio Redback Graphix produced posters that combined witty graphics with eye-watering colours to give voice to a raft of pressing social issues from AIDS awareness and alcohol abuse to the promotion of local films and music gigs. Originally designed for the street, these posters are now considered icons of an era and are highly sought after."--Provided by publisher.
