Printculture was created in 2004 by a group of crazy kids with a dream. By 2009 most of those kids were exhausted, and Printculture was kept alive by the intrepid efforts of the Tennessee heartthrob Haun Saussy and his gang of hilarious foreign sidekicks. In 2012, inspired by the prospect of giving up their available free time to write posts for Printculture’s tens of readers, an almost entirely new group of crazy kids (these ones, however, dreamless) signed up to be part of a Printculture renaissance.
Birthing itself vernally from the head of the wizened, original blogzine, Printculture 2.0 launched in October 2012. Depending on when you are reading this, it may still be going. Or we may have simply left another mess for Haun to clean up.
