Reviews

"Sometimes, a rebellion begins with a rebrand. In Queer X Design, the professor Andy Campbell weaves a telling visual tapestry of an emerging L.G.B.T.Q. language and identity."--The New York Times
"A pretty comprehensive illustrated history of the gay rights movement and how it's changed over the years.... Discover the stories behind some of the most memorable symbols of the past five decades."--HeSaid Magazine
"[Queer X Design] is an anthology of our trek from invisibility into Pride and beyond. It's a fascinating record that contains images that also predate the Stonewall rebellion by more than a quarter century... Between the covers of Queer X Design, you'll find photos that delight, artwork that seethes with rage, and images that have united the LGBTQ community in victories and setbacks throughout the struggle for equality."--Metrosource
"Queer X Design highlights and celebrates the many inventive and subversive designs that have helped drive the LGBTQ movement over the years...it's an inspiring and colourful visual history of design harnessed to bring about political and societal change."--CreativeBloq
"An entertaining, insightful, beautifully illustrated book that explains and celebrates the role of LGBTQ graphic design, and designers, since the Stonewall uprising in 1969 -- a sort of history of LGBTQ life and activism told through our symbols... [Campbell's] writing is insightful and entertaining and always interesting."--A&U Magazine
"An empowering visual history of the iconic symbols and designs that defined many eras of the LGBTQ movement."--The Globe and Mail
"A beautifully bound, well-researched book that draws a lineage of LGBTQ designs richer than a thousand rainbow Ralph Lauren polos. Campbell's book details an uncut LGBTQ artistry, spanning digital, print, paint, and even ink n' skin work (check out the Phil Sparrow's Tattoo Flash for that good stuff) -- tracing back to the days of pre-liberation and upward into the 21st century."--The Austin Chronicle
"This illuminating compendium by art historian and curator Andy Campbell is a deep dive into more than 50 years of the extraordinary art and design that came to represent the LGBTQ movement...Queer X Design is a must-read for anyone interested in the convergence of design, politics, and activism."--Metropolis Magazine
"A big, bold, and inspiring collection of the visual imagery that both represented and shaped the identity of the LGBTQ movement."--The Advocate
"For the first time, a colorful, visual collection coalesces the iconic posters, symbols and graphic designs that have defined 50 years of LGBTQ pride and activism. By decade, Andy Campbell's Queer X Design traces the lineage of lGBTQ artistry through pre-Stonewall to the present day."--Azure Magazine
