Librarian, artist and boss researcher fiend Tim Devin is back again with an extra thick new publication. This time Devin digs into the Boston area's 1970s counterculture, drawing on listings found in old countercultural directories and magazines. Tim outlines his findings, lays out some history, adds details about current property information, uses and values, and all kinds of other tasty nuggets of knowledge that will make you wonder what your own city once had and currently offers.
More interior details from the publisher:
Each volume of MAPPING OUT UTOPIA maps out a different part of the city. This one takes on the epicenter of Massachusetts countercultural life in the 60s and 70s: CAMBRIDGE. It offers overviews of almost 100 orgs, 7 hand-drawn maps, 20 images, and a number of in-depth profiles and essays on topics ranging from affordable spaces to feminism.
From the Assassination Information Bureau to Trout Fishing in America, it's all in here.
