As the dominant economic system is increasingly called into question, the time of the co-operative has well and truly come. Illustrating the history of the co-operative movement from its humble beginnings in the north of England to a worldwide network, this graphic novel presents a robust foundation for future well-being. Using a range of styles and cartoon pastiches, Polyp brings to life ideas and people who are rebooting a sustainable economy.
Radical cartoonist and activist Polyp has worked with campaigning organizations around the world for over fifteen years. He lives and works in a co-operative housing complex in Manchester, England.
