The first-ever illustrated history of the iconic designs, symbols, and graphic art representing more than 5 decades of LGBTQ pride and activism--from the evolution of Gilbert Baker's rainbow flag to the NYC Pride typeface launched in 2017 and beyond.

Organised by decade beginning with Pre-Liberation and then spanning the 1970s through the millennium, QUEER X DESIGN will be an empowering, uplifting, and colourful celebration of the hundreds of graphics-from shapes and symbols to flags and iconic posters-that have stood for the powerful and ever-evolving LGBTQ movement over the last five-plus decades

Included in the collection will be everything from Gilbert Baker's original rainbow flag, ACT-UP's Silence = Death poster, the AIDS quilt, and Keith Haring's "Heritage of Pride" logo, as well as the original Lavender Menace t-shirt design, logos such as "The Pleasure Chest," protest buttons such as "Anita Bryant Sucks Oranges," and so much more. Sidebars throughout will cover important visual grouping such as a "Lexicon of Pride Flags," explaining the now more than a dozen flags that represent segments of the community and the evolution of the pink triangle.

Need to be discreet? No problem! Everything is sent out in plain packaging.

Deliveries in the UK and around the world continue to be delayed due to different country lockdowns, the increase in online shopping and the reduction of flights carrying cargo and deliveries around the world.

You should expect your order to take longer than normal, although many are arriving on time. Some international orders take 2 weeks, some take 2 months. That's just thew way of the world at the moment.

We use Royal Mail for deliveries. Once an item is with Royal Mail, we're not able to track it until it's been delivered/signed for. 

We are fulfilling our orders as fast as possible and having daily delivery collections, but unfortunately we can't offer guaranteed delivery times. 

We really appreciate your support during this time, it's been such a tough time recently for independent retailers like us. 

Stay safe!!

We can not be held responsible if your order does not arrive for a certain date.
