Seymour Chwast At War With War

Designers & Books has just launched a Kickstarter campaign to publish Seymour Chwast’s new book of antiwar illustrations: Seymour Chwast at War with War: An Illustrated Timeline of 5000 Years of Conquests, Invasions, and Terrorist Attacks.

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.

  1. Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood.
