Radix Media

Radix Media Radix Media is a worker-owned print shop and publisher. Proudly union. The story of Radix Media began as a tale of two print shops, but would ultimately become much more than that.

A small, worker-owned print shop named OccuCopy was founded in the fall of 2011, one of several worker cooperatives born out of the blossoming Occupy Wall Street movement. They set up shop in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn and became a crucial resource for both the radical and surrounding communities of New York City. But before that, our story began in the Pacific Northwest in the fall of 2010. Radix Medi

Forthcoming Titles from Radix Media 📚

We have some thrilling collaborations and culminations in the works, and we cannot wait to have you along for the ride! 😎

◾️ First up, the remaining issues in Ganzeer's dystopian sci-fi graphic novel, THE SOLAR GRID, will be released monthly from June to October 2022, on the last Wednesday of every month. Subscribers will receive the issues as they’re published.

◾️ The debut short story collection by Zein El-Amine, and winner of the 2021 Megaphone Prize, IS THIS HOW YOU EAT A WATERMELON?, is set to be released Novemer 8, 2022.

Set in war-torn Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United States, the seven stories in the collection are joyful, devastating, and utterly original, daring the reader to look away.


◾️And last, but certainly not least: we’re beyond elated to announce our collaboration with Cadwell Turnbull and Josh Eure as editors.

MANY WORLDS is the culmination of fourteen writers producing stories taking place in a shared multiverse. The stories in this collection are revelatory and offer a breathtaking portal into worlds far more mysterious than our own. MANY WORLDS will be out May 09, 2023.

We started to offer free shipping at the beginning of the pandemic to make ordering from us more manageable, but it’s becoming more difficult as the pandemic continues.

If you’re local and want to save a couple bucks, we offer a pickup option. Thank you for understanding!

Look at this awesome holiday gift!!! A poem by political prisoner Eric King over an image of the Floyd uprising in Minnesota. Order at https://radixmedia.org/product/eric-king-support-letterpress-broadside/ Funds will go to support Eric's legal defense. Poster beautifully designed by Radix Media
Announcing the Free Eric King poster fundraiser! Friends at Radix Media in Brooklyn, NY have created an amazing poster with a piece of Eric King's poetry! It is a fundraiser and proceeds will go to Eric's support fund. You can order at the link below. Thanks! Order at https://radixmedia.org/product/eric-king-support-letterpress-broadside/ On August 09, 2014, a 28-year-old white Ferguson Police officer named Darren Wilson shot and murdered Michael Brown, a young 18-year-old unarmed Black man. Spurred by this event and the continued, relentless cases of police officers across America shooting at unarmed Black people, a wave of protests erupted all over the country, most notably in the city of Ferguson. Protestors held their hands in the air and cried “Don’t Shoot,” to protest the heavy militarization of American police and their use of excessive force in interactions with Black people. A month later, angered by the inaction and police brutality during the protests, vegan poet and anarchist Eric King flung two incendiary devices into a Kansas City Congressperson’s office, both of which failed to ignite. King was arrested and sentenced to ten years, a statutory minimum and maximum sentence. Despite encountering police harassment, targeting, and extreme isolation from loved ones while incarcerated, King continues to write and champion for racial and social justice. To Support Eric King, we are releasing a limited edition of 35 posters carrying one of his revolutionary poems. All profits generated from the sale of the poster will be sent to Eric’s’s support fund. You can support the campaign fighting for his release by visiting Supportericking.org. The print is approximately 12.5″ x 20″ and was letterpress printed in multiple passes on our vintage Vandercook proofing press.
