Slingshot Planners are here!

bgorg2010Slingshot Planners are finally here!

Slingshot is a quarterly, independent, radical, newspaper published in the East Bay since 1988 by the Slingshot Collective.  For the past 16 years they have been making amazing pocket planners with a DIY aesthetic and durability.  This year they also have desk planners, which are larger spiral bound notebooks!

From their site:

“The pocket version “classic” is a 176 page pocket planner (4.25 inches X 5.5 inches) with radical dates for every day of the year, space to write your phone numbers, a contact list of radical groups around the globe, menstrual calendar, info on police repression, extra note pages, plus much more. Choose from 22 cover colors printed with either black or silver ink (depending on how dark the paper stock is – you get to pick the cover color, not the ink color). It has a tough layflat binding and a laminated cover.

The large-size version is bound with a spiral wire binding and is twice the size of the “classic” pocket organizer (5.5 inches X 8.5 inches) with twice as much space to write all the events in your life. It is 160 pages. It has similar contents to the classic: radical dates for every day of the year, space to write your phone numbers, a contact list of radical groups around the globe, menstrual calendar, info on police repression, extra note pages, plus much more. You get a little bonus stuff in the spiral version. The spiral version is available in 17 colors printed with either black or silver ink (depending on how dark the paper stock is). The covers are laminated with heavy duty 3 mil glossy plastic to help it survive the year.”
