-This wiki was initiated by Jess Baines as a parallel project to more formal academic research about the history of the UK radical printshop collectives and co-ops. The impetus partly came from the excitement I was witnessing about the potential of 'new media', particularly web-based, to 'democratise' the means of communication and representation - to me this was exactly the ambition of some of the radical print projects that began in the 1970s. The other driver was the realisation — prompted by the 30th birthday of Calverts Press in 2007 — was that the diverse proliferation of 'alternative' printshops (co-ops/community/collectives) that existed through the 1970s and 80s had disappeared not only without a trace but //before// web-based and internet communications had been seriously adopted by the printshops typical user groups. What happened? What conjunction of economic/political/cultural/technical/personal factors were responsible? The academic project, was done as a part-time PhD in the Media & Communication Department at London School of Economics, started in 2008 and was completed in 2016. The 'data' about the printshops was primarily drawn from interviews with numerous ex-participants and examination of archive materials. It is called Democratising print? The field and practices of radical and community printshops in Britain 1968-98.You can download it here: [[http://etheses.lse.ac.uk/3452/]]+This wiki was initiated by Jess Baines as a parallel project to more formal academic research about the history of the UK radical printshop collectives and co-ops.

I have also written several much smaller pieces that relate to the history of the printshops (including one about the wiki) which due to current technical issues with site aren't uploaded here. They can be obtained via my page on academia.edu [[https://arts-london.academia.edu/JessBaines]]

-The hope for the wiki was that it offered public information about the history of the printshops, information which could be added to and modified by those that were part of creating that history.  Various ex printshop members (and in the case of Calverts and Footprint - current members) uploaded info and images, others have sent material to be uploaded. You can get in touch via the contact form (top right).  //Jess Baines// +
