Books have always been a vessel for storing and spreading information. As bookbinders we can use our skills right now to help disseminate information for the Black Lives Matter movement and introduce all types of people to the facts about police brutality.
Sarah Bryant, Big Jump Press, has shared her book Read This Out Loud as a free downloadable PDF that can be easily bound. On her blog, you can find the link to the PDF, plus some video tutorials for how to bind it.
Read This Out Loud is meant to be distributed for free or if sold, all proceeds should go toward Black Lives Matter or a similar organization.
The book was designed in June 2020 in a response to the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor and includes the names of people who have died by police brutality. Check out Sarah’s blog for more information about the book itself and how this information was compiled.
