I've been reading an amazing series that ran in Maximum R&R two years ago. It is basically just a series of interviews with people who run small businesses in and around punk rock and roll. There are a ton of different opinions and a lot of insight. I recommend this series for anyone interested in small business or d.i.y. culture. I've put the whole thing up in a giant (120+megs) PDF here: www.sparkplugcomicbooks.com/business.pdf I've put up a sample page on this blog. Take a look and I'd love to hear what you think.
