Spray it loud reflects the signature struggles of the British left in this period. The book’s typology of delinquent typography is comprised of feminist tags and antiracist slogans, calls for social housing and for nuclear disarmament, signs making that marks a place and a time. Posener’s images of words are also images of actions.A billboard advertising a new Fiat model reads: IF IT WERE A LADY, IT WOULD GET ITS BOTTOM PINCHED. To which someone scrawls the riposte, IF THIS LADY WAS A CAR SHE’D RUN YOU DOWN. The Fiat image was reproduced as a postcard that circulated in such high numbers that a reporter for Woman of Power magazine said Posener’s pictures stood for a “populist expression of feminism.” Certainly the caustic wit of the one-liners runs counter to the idea of feminists as pious politicos. WE CAN IMPROVE YOUR NIGHTLIFE, reads an advertisement for Rest Assured beds. JOIN LESBIANS UNITED, a vandal replies.
