Whose World is the World?

October 1979

A poster set, published by Poster-Film Collective, P.O. Box No. 50., 182 Upper Street, London, N.1. £6.00 + 50p postage.

This is a set of 12 brightly coloured 20" x 30" posters which trace Britain’s relationship with developing countries from the pre-colonial era to the present day. The medium is collage and the message fairly strident, so the result is cruder than one would have liked. But the experiment is an interesting one and UK teachers, particularly those with muti-racial classes, who want to provide a counterpoint to the comfortable view given to children by most history books would find this a productive investment.
