The following announcement by Left Bank Books was posted recently on a listserv associated with the North American Anarchist Studies Network. It is presented here without further comment.
After several years of publishing silence, Left Bank Books Collective is pleased to announce the restart of its publishing project. We will be publishing books, as well as pamphlets, both repressings, and original works.
To kickoff the project, we are releasing to the world two pamphlets. The first is a repress of the first pamphlet Left Bank ever published, The Kronstadt Uprising of 1921, written in 1975 by one of Left Bank’s founders, Lynne Thorndycraft, with a cover printed on a letterpress (feels nice in your hands!) right here in Pike Place Market. The second is a new essay by John Zerzan titled The Origins of the 1% The Bronze Age, with covers silkscreened on shiny “bronze” paper. Both of these pamphlets will be available at the 2012 Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair, and of course, in our shop.
Upcoming is a new edition of Peter Gelderloos’ How Nonviolence Protects the State, which we swear will be finished before the 2012 Seattle Anarchist Bookfair.
Before long we should have our published wares available for mailorder on our website as well.
