Official Stories Posters
The striking images in "Official Stories Posters" are not only visually stimulating - they are compact lessons in the history of the modern world. This 8.5x11 in. full-color, beautifully-printed book from author Liam Scheff describes an artist's approach to investigative journalism by laying out big questions and answers in images:
- "Did Shakespeare write Shakespeare?
- Who invented "Big Bang" theory (is it a science, or a religion?)
- Who were the Dulles Brothers, and who really killed John F. Kennedy?
- Was polio really caused by a virus (or was it the DDT?)
- Does HIV cause AIDS? Does HPV cause cancer? Does Gardasil stop it?"
In a careful reading of the posters in this book, the viewer can trace the creation of the modern pharmaceutical era - from the realities of vaccine history, to CIA, JFK and 9/11, to HIV testing and AIDS theory, to Shakespeare and the Big Bang, to HPV propaganda and more.
This is the first companion piece to Liam’s ground-breaking book, “Official Stories,” and works perfectly with the text to illustrate, in colorful and striking words and images, that “Official Stories really do exist to protect officials.”
The images will make you think – and smile, too – they’re full of an appreciation for the comic-book pop culture that surrounds us and the propaganda we’re daily faced with.
"Official Stories Posters Vol. 1" is also an excellent - and perhaps essential - teaching aid for any class on the differences between what we're told to believe, and what a serious researcher can find in verifiable, resilient evidence of what lies beneath in our heavily-propagandized culture.
Description: Book, 8.5x11 inches. Twenty-two full-page poster images, and 5 images as double page blow-ups (10 pages), for easy reading.
