A PDF of the reprint of three bibliographies put together by the Chicago-based collective Temporary Services between 1999 and 2006.

"This booklet will guide you to dozens of excellent texts, books and websites from three areas of concentration. First there is the bibliography from our Mobile Sign Systems project booklet from 1999, which shares the details of many books on creating in public places that were foundational texts for us.
"Secondly, there is the massive Critical Mass, An Activist Art Bibliography. This list was originally compiled by Alan W. Moore in 2002. It is a bibliography based on reference materials that were made available to visitors to the exhibition Critical Mass, a group show curated by Stephanie Smith for the Smart Museum of Art in Chicago. Other additions to the bibliography were made by Wendy Jacob and Laurie Palmer, Robert Peters, Gregory Sholette, and Temporary Services.
"The third bibliography compiles all of the books we've included in the Prisoners' Inventions exhibition reading area (compiled in 2005-2006). A number of internet articles related to creativity by incarcerated people fills out the booklet. " -- description from Half Letter Press
