Day Before the Revolution
Published by Futures and Pasts
5.75"x8.75", 28p, 4 color risograph, French flaps, saddle-stitched.
This story was initially published in 1974 in Galaxy Magazine, the only story Ursula K. Le Guin published in the same story arc as her book The Dispossessed. In this 1974 short story, Le Guin accounts a day in the life of Odo, the woman whose writings and actions inspired a revolution and a new society. Alec Icky Dunn and Josh MacPhee have (with both Le Guin and her publisher’s permission) re-designed and illustrated this story for a limited edition chapbook. Dunn has created four new full-page illustration, a portrait of Le Guin, seven smaller graphics, and the stunning full-spread cover image. Dunn and MacPhee have also printed and assembled each chapbook themselves, with cover printing help from Christopher Kardambikis. This edition of 1000 copies is the first and only edition that will be printed, and is the first publication in the new imprint Futures and Pasts.
