No Masters No Slaves
Designed by LibertyManiacs
If you’re like me, you really appreciate vintage graphic t-shirts with an edgy look. I’m a sucker for designs with unusual visual impact that look like they’re from another age. However, so many cool t-shirt designs fall short when it comes to anything more than interesting aesthetics. If I’m going to wear a shirt, I want it to speak to me. Better yet, I want it so say something about me. The America rebels like the “Liberty Boys” were known to wear clothes covered with the word “liberty” and super aggressive slogans like “liberty or death” on them. Not surprising considering they were to the point of revolt. Sounds like a tradition that needs a return. With “No Masters, No Slaves”, I put together a bunch of symbolic imagery to build what I imagined Samuel Adam’s and his Sons of Liberty would have created as an emblem with the tools they had in the 18th Century—a sort of “lost logo” for a secret society of freedom fighters. Hell, I suppose you could consider these dudes “freedom street fighters.” An ominous skull clad in a Roman emperor’s crown (Corona Radiata) watches over a morbid scene of the skeletal agent of tyranny holding a banner in one hand while executing a kneeling patriot excepting his fate through prayer. The Latin “libertas vel nex” or “liberty or death” surrounds. On the head of the patriot rebel is a Pileus, or “liberty Cap” associated with the manumission of slaves who wore it upon their liberation. Evidence of manumission is below in the form of broken shackles, with the Latin motto haud dominus haud famulus below, or No Masters, No Slaves. Above the scene are the hands of God emanating from the clouds, ready to grasp the rebel up, which was common imagery for period crests and heraldry.

Great work RB!

by Terry on Aug 30, 2018

Great tee shirt and high print quality. The large classic is a little large for me but after washing and the shrinkage factor, it’s a really great fit. Slight variations in tee shirt fir but overall I’m very happy. I love RB because. You guys are ever so reliable. My order always gets here on time without any fuss. Will be great if the classic tee shirts cane in a size between medium and large.....a ‘Medarge’. Keep up the great work RB. TERRY
