Nowt anthology 01

The first Nowt Press anthology collected and updated some older editions from this site, but also some of the material from the Nowt Press pre-history as a pamphleteer. It was a one hundred page ebook entitled ‘Beginning again in the middle’, here is the PDF.

The need for an anthology began to rise as the little Nowt editions accumulated on this site, and it became clear that they were ‘all of their time’ – by which I mean of now – despite contributions across generations, from writers in their twenties, thirties, forties, fifties, sixties, genealogies going back to Bob Cobbing, Jeff Nuttall and Ian Hinchliffe, then forward again to British psychogeography and over the smashed fragments of Marxism… So I have split the book into Diagnoses (where we are now), Practices (what to do about it), and Augurs (pure speculations about what might happen from here on).

So this is a kind of manifesto by example, which is responding in its own way to the various crises of now. Because what Nowt Press did when it revived itself was simply what everyone does all of the time, we begin again, as Deleuze described it, in the middle, never at the start.
