Shepard Fairey has designed the new cover art for Marshall McLuhan’s most popular book “The Medium Is The Massage”
A small quantity of signed books by Shepard will be sold on his site in the coming weeks so check back with us soon for more details.

In 1967 McLuhan wrote in The Medium is the Massage:
“Electrical Information Devices for universal, tyrannical womb-to-tomb surveillance are causing a very serious dilemma between our claim to privacy and the community’s need to know”.

“Our official culture is striving to force the new media to do the work of the old”
