The Communist Manifesto

The Communist Manifesto / Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, adapted by Martin Rowson, unpaged

In case you are as confused as I was when I picked up this graphic rendering of a rather famous text, the Manifesto is very brief, unlike Das Kapital, which comes close to 900p.  So.

Rowson's art is fascinating, complicated, and extremely dense; certainly it would take longer to parse the artwork here than to read the text.  This is definitely worth looking at and reading, if only for the fun, anachronistic feel.  "Working men of all countries, unite!  You have nothing to lose but your chains.  You have a world to win."  Hmmm.
