Partnering with libcom for pamphlets/print publishing?

This is just a speculative post at present, but I have thought for a while it would be good to do some of our content as print publications - mostly thinking about pamphlets for the time being. But we don't really have the time or capability to do this, so I was wondering if anyone out there was involved in, or knew of any publishing houses or groups that would be interested in working together on it?

(I'm thinking here of some of our exclusive texts like this account of the Egyptian revolution, some of our biographies, introductory guides etc)

I can ask Thought Crime Ink. We're always looking for more stuff to print, though we're located in North America. Oh, and we already did print the libcom intro to capitalism.

Cool, thanks, yeah we don't mind what country it's based in. Ideally whoever it is would have the ability to sell online internationally

It would be nice if someone could produce a N. American version of the Class Struggle and Mental Health pamphlet, as afaik it is only available in the UK right now. smile

At the thoughtcrime/blackcatpress fully-unionized production plant, booklets are printed, collated, folded, saddle-stitched, square-backed, and trimmed all in one operation. Just sayin'...

And a very nice job you do as well, Karetelnik wink

Be good to see some Libcom stuff in print. Besides, t'internet is old hat and has had its day. Introductory guides pocket size would be mint.

This is something I'd like to work on once I'm done with the digitization project.
