New Stuff This Week



Anarchists in the Boardroom: How Social Media and Social Movements Can Help Your Organisation to be More Like People by Liam Barrington-Bush (More Like People) $20.00 – There are lessons emerging all around us, in the new social movements that have swept the globe, and in the organising patterns found on social media. Could Twitter and Occupy help our NGOs, charities, trade unions and voluntary organisations to both stay relevant in the times ahead and live our values through the ways that we organise? Anarchists in the Boardroom is a journey through worker-run factories, Occupy encampments, a spattering of non-violent direct actions and even a few forward-thinking companies, to make the case for helping our organizations ‘to be more like people.’ It asks us to brush away our ‘professional’ assumptions and interact as we do when we don’t have job descriptions or business plans telling us how to change the world. It reminds us of the power each of us has to make change happen, even within the most entrenched of bureaucracies.

New Stuff This Week


Pirate Nightmare Vice Explosion: Inherited Remnants of an Amateur Dadaist’s Library by Michael Kupperman (Four Corners Books) $40.00 – Comics artist Kupperman (Tales Designed to Thrizzle, Snake ‘n’ Bacon’s Cartoon) bought a stack of men’s magazines from the 1950s and 1960s where the previous owner did some weirdo modifications. Now he’s sharing it with you, FOUND Magazine-style. “They all had the owner’s name stamped on them,” Kupperman observed, “but the stamp is slightly illegible, so it’s impossible to know if the name is C. Buechtel, C. Brockel, C. Buschol or some other variant. This man–I’m assuming it was a man–spent years acquiring lurid men’s magazines and taking them apart, using the contents to form his own hybrid magazines with the pages from several reassembled inside the cover of one. With a grease pencil he’d cross out the headlines on the covers that didn’t apply anymore, and stamp his name on the results, along with a number. Why was he doing this? It’s not clear. It might have been a need to make the magazines seem like a serious collection, his re-editing emphasizing his sober interest in subjects such as modern fiction and wife-swapping.

Simon Barker: Punk’s Dead by Michael Bracewell et al. $45.00 – From 1976 to 1978, the young photographer Simon Barker was a member of the “Bromley Contingent”–a group of avid Sex Pistols fans who comprised the group’s inner circle at the height of the punk movement. Many of them, such as Jordan and Siouxsie Sioux, were notorious for their daredevil dress sense, and several–such as Sioux, Steven Severin, Adam Ant, Poly Styrene, Billy Idol, Viv Albertine and Ari Up–went on to form some of the most important bands of the era. This compilation of previously unseen photographs by Barker shows these founders of punk in their earliest incarnations–in bedrooms and kitchens, at public gigs and private parties–before media and commerce sunk their claws into punk’s iconoclastic look and class politics.

Meags Fitzgerald Launches PHOTOBOOTH: A BIOGRAPHY 6/12

Jun ’14
7:00 pm

quimby's photobooth portraitCome join Meags as she presents her work and discusses the process of making the definitive graphic novel about this fascinating subject.

For almost a century chemical photobooths have occupied public spaces, giving people the opportunity to quickly take inexpensive, quality photos. In the last decade these machines have started to rapidly disappear, causing an eclectic group of in- dividuals from around the world to come together and respond. Illustrator, writer and long-time photobooth lover, Meags Fitzger- ald has chronicled the photobooth’s fortuitous history and the events which gave rise to the desperate need to save them. Having traveled in North America, Europe and Australia, she’s constructed a biography of the booth through the eyes of technicians, owners, collectors, artists and fanatics. In this ground-breaking book Fitzgerald struggles with her own relationship to these fleeting machines, while looking to the future.
Meags Fitzgerald is an artist and storyteller who draws, animates, writes and performs. Working primarily as an illustrator, she has a BFA from the Alberta College of Art + Design and a certificate in Design from the Nova Scotia College of Art + Design University. In many of her works, Fitzgerald addresses memory, history and the act of collecting. Photobooth: A Biography is her first graphic novel.
