This collection consists of a complete collection of the first series of the publication Kaliflower, with some supplements, and an incomplete collection of other products of the Free Print Shop. There are also some miscellaneous
related items, including one of the original Kaliflower clipboards, and the trunk in which the archives were delivered to California Historical Society.
The Free Print Shop, one of several work projects of the Sutter Street Commune, published the intercommunal newsletter Kaliflower in San Francisco from April 24, 1969 through June 22, 1972. The Sutter Street Commune was one of several hundred communes
in the 1960s in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Free Print Shop was in the basement of the commune's Victorian house in the
redevelopment-owned area of the city, near where Japantown now stands.
