There was a hugely-expensive, extremely limited edition book about the subject a couple of years back. Thankfully, the Beauty Is In The Street book, also known as A Visual Record of the May '68 Paris Uprising, is more affordable and plentiful.
The subject matter is the May 1968 student protests in Paris, which also spread to factories and other workplaces to create a general strike that brought the country to a standstill. Among the students were a group called the Atelier Populaire, which produced hundreds of posters to encourage the protestors and to report on police brutality.
This book reproduces over 200 of these iconic posters, as well as featuring a number of photographs, many published for the first time and translations of first-hand accounts of the clashes between the students, strikers and the police. 272 pages and published by Four Corners Books, this hardback book is available for £25.
