AK Baltimore visits the Big Apple for Left Forum 2010

Monday, March 29th, 2010

(Wow, is this a busy Spring for tabling! There’s really too many amazing events every March and April it seems. AK Baltimore handles most of our tabling gigs in NYC, but for Left Forum 2010, which took place March 19-21, I was on a plane on my way back from California, so two amazing Red [...]

The Future of Anarchism…47 Years Ago

Saturday, March 27th, 2010

The 15th Annual Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair happened two weeks ago. If you weren’t there, uh, you missed it. I was there.

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Just yesterday, AK Press received our first copies of the brand new book, Sistah Vegan.

As you (hopefully) know, Left Bank Books is still alive and well, after 36 years in the Pike Place Market. We are still run collectively, and we [...]

And aren’t you glad you weren’t there?

Friday, March 19th, 2010

The AK Press Oakland warehouse crew got a surprise workout yesterday when a truck arrived from our printer carrying five pallets of quality literature for you, dear readers. And so we offer you this photographic evidence of our truck-unloading prowess. We did it all for you—and with the help of some smooth pallet-jack maneuvers by [...]
