Free City News (Sets #1, #2)

The Free City Collective, San Francisco (Fall 1967/Spring 1968)

In the late summer, 1967, some of the Diggers forcibly appropriated the Gestetner equipment that Chester Anderson and Claude Hayward had used to produce the Communication Company bulletins. The new Free City Collective used these machines to create the Free City News sheets, which supplanted the Com/Co operations. The hard-edge writing of Anderson, and the black and white productions typical of Com/Co were replaced by a larger (8-1/2" x 14") format, colorful designs, and more poetic pronouncements. 

The Free City Collective printed and distributed these sheets (size: 8-1/2" x 14") in late 1967-early 1968. There were two collections of sheets. This is the first. All sheets were originally fastened with a metal clip.
