I'll ask him next time I see him to make sure but I'mm 99.9999999999999999% sure that he would not have a problem with his pics being here—Preceding unsigned comment added by Quercusrobur (talkcontribs) 2002-10-20T16:04:00


Moved from Agraphia- is it necesary to have a page explaining an external (to wikipedia) website when one might as well just go straight to the website? (Bloody good website though it is!); [1] See also Clifford Harper. This site has been set up recently to link with an exhibition in the Guardian 'Newsroom' archive and the publication of the Country Diary drawings. The site uses Flash. You have to move the mouse about a bit to find where to click. Please change this page to explain more. My timer is running out for now.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Quercusrobur (talkcontribs) 2002-10-20T16:04:00

Long publications list[edit]

That long, unremitting list of supposedly radical publications is aesthetically unpleasant and additionally inaccurate unless one regards such mainstream publications as the Financial Times and The Independent as secretly subversive. 2600:1004:B164:1C66:11B3:84CA:DDBE:CA8A (talk) 03:29, 5 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It does. I've reduced the list to a handful that have articles which can be linked to. --Lord Belbury (talk) 08:40, 26 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Moving uncited paragraph to talk:

His early drawing style was typically exemplified by the utopian 'Visions' series of posters, for the Undercurrents 1974 anthology Radical Technology. These were highly detailed and precise illustrations showing scenes of post-revolutionary self-sufficiency, autonomy and alternative technology in urban and rural settings, becoming almost de rigueur on the kitchen wall of any self-respecting radical's commune, squat or bedsit during the 1970s. Of these posters Harper writes:

Funnily enough they were particularly popular in Spain following the death of Franco and the liberalisation that followed that happy, but long overdue, event. I think the reason for their success is that although they are utopian images they depict an existence that is immediately approachable—all it would take is the seizing of a few empty buildings and the knocking down of a few meaningless walls...
