Straitjackets, Machetes and, Oh Yes, Some Books


Robin Blum noted This NYTimes Story on the New York opening of the Autonomadic Bookmobile, which for two years has traveled the country carrying books by Autonomedia, a small nonprofit Williamsburg publisher that prints criticism by authors like Dwight McDonald, Guy Debord and Michel Foucault.
Autonomedia, whose staff members are volunteers, has published more than 200 books. Typically, about 3,000 copies of each book are printed, Mr. Fleming said. But the publisher's best-known book, "T.A.Z." (Temporary Autonomous Zone), a collection of essays on autonomy by Hakim Bey, has sold about 30,000 copies.
