An Illustrated Guide to Guy Debord's 'The Society of the Spectacle'

From Hyperallergic: An Illustrated Guide to Guy Debord’s ‘The Society of the Spectacle’

Guy Debord’s (1931–1994) best-known work, La société du spectacle (The Society of the Spectacle) (1967), is a polemical and prescient indictment of our image-saturated consumer culture.
