Welcome to the world of Breakdown Press.


There has been lots of action here at Breakdown Press and we are so excited to be launching our new book “How to Make Trouble and Influence People” written by Iain McIntyre.

This book is a collected and expanded edition of the publication of the same name, the original version of which came out in 1996 as an 80-page, self-published zine documenting and celebrating Australian political pranking and creative direct action. It proved to be a modest success and was reprinted a number of times by anarchist collective Scam Publications before spawning two sequels, “How To Stop Whining And Start Living” in 1999 and “Revenge Of The Troublemaker” in 2003. With all of these publications long out of print Iain has, with the aid of us here at Breakdown Press Tom Sevil and Lou Smith, brought together the best of the material from the first three books along with hundreds of new listings, interviews, and graphics. “How to make Trouble and Influence People” will be launched in Newcastle, Sydney and Melbourne and more cities soon. Keep an eye on our homepage for details.

Also take a look around a new website for directions on how to order previous publications and for info about our upcoming poster series The Peace Posters. More details coming soon on how to contribute artworks and designs to this new poster series.
