A rare and countercultural book on the Iranian revolution, a book that turns into an artist's book with photographic documentation, slogans and poems. A collage of several monochrome pages with intense graphics that was so unusual for that period, this was possible because it was a self-published book where the authors' intent was to move away from classic black and white publications.
The use of a pantone served to approach a color book and lead the reader to a different, more intense narrative where the combination with the graphics conveys the revolutionary feeling of 1979 Iran.
