68 pp., Homeless Portraits by Michael O'Brien, and Signs Photographed by Randal Ford. From the Pentagram Website. "We have all seen the homeless on street corners holding hand-scrawled signs. Their messages are desperate, heartbreaking, and at times, even humorous. These naked forms of self-expression have unintentionally become some of the most basic, raw and compelling examples of graphic communication in our society today. The 39th edition of our privately published Pentagram Papers series was designed by DJ Stout. It features signs from the personal collection of the legendary musician and writer Joe Ely and photographed by Randal Ford. These images are combined with a series of large-format portraits of the homeless by Austin-based photographer Michael O'Brien, who worked with Alan Graham, president of Austin's Mobile Loaves & Fishes, and Brother Duane Severance, a pastor to the street people. Ely wrote the book's foreword. " We will donate half of the money we receive for this item to St Mungo's, the London homeless charity that Pentagram support.
