For quite a few years now, Autonomedia has been putting out consistently challenging literature. From their books on art, culture and theory, to Graphic Novels by a member of The Fugs. Just browsing the titles will get your brain working.

Excellent Link, anathema! Alway's warms my heart to see a great fugs link. Tuli's comic is on my list to hunt down in the big apple this weekned. Autonomedia seems like a badass publisher on the level of good ol' AK Press .

Continuing toward the edge. Also, the Zone books from MIT press not only have great content, but their design is always top-notch, I've been trying to get through this one for a while. If you can find the Fragments for a History of the Human Body series, it's worth picking up.

very much agreed w/r/t zone books:

Incorporartions volume 5 is my fave. Great essays by Manuel DeLanda, Gilles Deleuze, Paul Virilio, etc.

Does anyone know where to get the uber-rare Semiotext[e] periodicals from the 80's. I know less than nothing about them except that they were 8.5x11" about 1" thick and there were a bunch of them -- one called USA, one called Canada....etc. If you know of a resource, let me know!

But Autonomedia's _Forget Foucault_, _On the Line_ by Deleuze and Guitarri, and all the rest were 100% responsible for getting my brain going back in the pre-web days. Makes me wonder if the web is actually less effective for presenting these kinds of ideas. hmm.

I used to travel with my copy of USA, Architecture was also great. I have no idea what happened to them. They have been out of print for years and I never see them used, although I'm sure they are out there. Here are a couple of them.
