From the mind of Fredy Perlman and wife Lorraine Nybakken, The Detroit Printing Co-op was born after buying and transporting a printing press from Chicago to Detroit in 1969. With no formal printing or design backgrounds the duo with some kindred spirits took a passion for the medium, married it to their politicized beliefs and revolutionized the industry.
Their ensuing publications through 1980 were not just a call to action but beacons of craft and and experiment.
Author Danielle Aubert highlights the historical legacy of the co-op and why it matters still today.
