In Loving Memory Of Work is “A visual record of the political graphics and cultural outputs during the UK miner’s strike during 1984-85”. Curated and designed by Craig Oldham, this beautifully executed 168 page book captures Britain’s longest ever industrial dispute.

Oldham also worked with designer Aaron Skipper to create 2 original typefaces for the book. The first, Liaison, the headline face used throughout the book, was designed based on the Liaison Committee For The Defence Of The Trade Union (LCDTU) placards used during the strike. The second, Ferrymoor, was inspired by the NUM Ferrymoor Riddings Branch banner. Both typefaces will be available for download with proceeds going to the cause.

In Loving Memory Of Work is out now on Oldham’s own imprint, Unified Theory of Everything. Proceeds go to the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign.
