A one-off special edition from culture and politics annual Left Cultures, this petite staple bound zine celebrates the ‘bravery, loyalty and foresight the Luddites had in trying to protect their communities’ while rallying against unfair wages and mass mechanisation in the 19th century. This history is documented through a collection of 13 sites of Luddite significance across Lancashire and Yorkshire—inns, museums, graves and more—each carefully hand-illustrated and accompanied by a short blurb.
