New Comic Book Illustrates a History of Fair Trade

In recent weeks a comic book, written by Phyllis Robinson and Nicholas Reid, with illustration and graphic design by Vendela Larsson, called “The History of Authentic Fair Trade”, was made available by Equal Exchange. The 48 pg. comic book is for high school level & above.

This educational work of art presents an engaging story of the history of Fair Trade from the perspective of interests focused on fully committed Fair Trade, small farmers and democratic producer coops. While some Fair Trade interests will disagree with some of the opinions in, and tone of, the story, the comic covers many key events and insightful global contexts under which Fair Trade has evolved since its beginnings.
