AK Press in Publishers Weekly

May 2, 2008

Our friends at AK Press, one of the largest and best anarchist book publishers and distributors in the world (which I guess unfortunately isn’t saying too much, but still…), just got a really nice write-up in Publishers Weekly, one of the big mainstream industry rags. Maybe some people are starting to notice that there are better ways to sail a ship than the corporate model….
From the article:

“But perhaps the most unusual thing about the press, which has doubled the number of units it sells over the past decade and grossed $1.4 million last year, is that it’s organized as an anarchist collective. Although its 10 U.S. staff members specialize in different areas—publishing/editorial, distribution and sales and marketing—each gets an equal vote when it comes to which books, CDs or DVDs to publish.”
