Hear writer Paul Sherman talk about his experience documenting the Trump campaign trail via the rude, sexist, and racist political items that galvanized supporters during the 2016 election.

***

Look Away documents and categorizes the vulgar and sexist signs, bumper stickers, T-shirts, and buttons that were part of the fabric of many Trump rallies. Many of the images in Look Away's 176 pages are offensive and tough to stomach, yet they are a vital record of the past election. The book serves as an important reminder to future generations about the break in political discourse that occurred in 2016. In a poignant introduction, author Paul Sherman reveals how his passion for political memorabilia over the last 35 years led him to write this book.
