Hello out there and welcome to the new Adobe Blog! From its time on 16th Street to its current, 5-year-old incarnation as a cooperative on 24th Street, the Adobe Books and Arts Cooperative has aimed to provide a place to read and find books, meet like-minded people, and absorb performances, events, and exhibitions that reflect the cooperative’s vision, however fragile, of a space in San Francisco reserved for the community-minded and arts-enthusiastic.
With this blog, we hope to maintain a decentralized, online platform that is in many ways a virtual analog of the Adobe spirit embodied in the diverse books, events, and exhibitions on offer at our 24th Street space. You can expect transmissions in the form of: interviews, essays, appreciations, event previews, reviews, histories, photos…and anything else we can manage to zap from our minds to your screen.
We welcome a wide array of contributors, and the best way to get involved here, while also helping to keep our physical space up and running, is to become a volunteer with the co-op.
Happy reading! // jamie a.
