About the book

The book contains daily musings in the life of an activist, threshing out the exigencies of political struggle in everyday life and culture.

Design notes

The cover is all about cycles and progression. The consistency of circular forms (the eye, the phases of night and day, the type treatment) and the color red give unity to the images. The rhythm of the repeating circles connotes cyclic motion and the passage of time, while the evolving forms and the increasing size of the circles speak of change and evolution, of circles and horizons literally expanding, a reference to the remolding and raising of consciousness integral to the daily life of an activist.
