UNDERGROUND PRESS SALE
Sale Alert: There is a big sale over at Rocket 88 Books, where you can pick up In the Sixties by Barry Miles and this cool gem, British Underground Press of the Sixties (now only $25!). Sale ends Jan 5th, 2019. From my original press release: International Times founder/Indica Gallery/Bookshop owner Barry Miles and London gallery owner James Birch created an exciting book called British Underground Press of the Sixties. Essentially a catalog for the 2017 exhibit at A22 Gallery, the book celebrates the legacy of the UK counter-culture movement and features cover art from every issue of Britain's underground press in the 60s, along with comics and other material. The images are fascinating, revealing, and as co-curator James Birch described them, "visually explosive." I enjoy seeing elements of the various popular styles of the time such as Op Art, Art Nouveau, and psychedelia. If Spy Vibers ever wondered how the culture evolved during the decade and how the ideas of the youth movement were transmitted, you will do well to study the underground press and the efforts of people like Miles, Joe Boyd, and John "Hoppy" Hopkins. And you might already well have a foot in that territory if curiosity has led you The Beatles and Pink Floyd. Two editions are available: standard edition and a signed/boxed edition with artifacts (limited to 100). More info at British Underground Press and Rocket 88. From their press release: "In 1966 Barry Miles and John ‘Hoppy’ Hopkins decided to start a newspaper. They called it International Times and launched it in April. It was the first British underground newspaper, and began a news media revolution. This catalogue displays the covers of every British underground paper that launched in the 1960s: International Times, Oz, Friends/Frendz, Gandalf’s Garden, Black Dwarfand Ink. It also includes the comic books that grew out of the papers, and various examples of the graphics, ads, posters and flyers produced by each publication. There will be 100 limited edition Groovy Deluxe sets of the catalogue housed in a box with each with an original 1960s issue of IT , Oz and Friends, an original OzJanis Jopiln poster and is also signed and numbered by the authors." Below: sample cover designs (from the web), the new book, and a video discussion with Miles and Birch. And stay tuned for news about another cool (signed!) book about the 1960s by Barry Miles! Enjoy!
