Seymour turns his pen and sketchpad toward creating a new book on a subject that has been a personal obsession for nearly six decades: the fight against war, humankind's never-ending scourge.
“It’s the ongoing relentlessness of the thing. That’s the nagging notion through the years that keeps bringing me back to the subject of war.” — Seymour Chwast
Join Seymour in his fight and help publish his new book of powerful antiwar images. At War with War visualizes humanity’s 5,000-year-long state of conflict, chaos and violence on a continuous timeline. Thirty-five two-page spreads in stark black-and-white pen-and-ink drawings and woodcuts illustrate history’s most notorious battles.
To support the Kickstarter, Chwast has opened the doors to his archive, offering both new and vintage items to backers. Deadline is June 9, 2016.
