Catalogue raisonné

Image of the cover of a book. The title and author are rendered in white on a black background, and occupy the upper third of the image. The remaining text is rendered in white on a red background, or red on a black background, and occupies the lower edge of the image. The majority of the cover appears as a black and white photographic image of a crowd of (male?) figures. Many of the figures have one arm raised, perhaps indicating solidarity among the group.
