A beautifully designed magazine that originated in Australia in 1963 and fizzled out after a 10 year spell. It features lots of psychedelic, hippy content and was subject to obscenity trials which resulted in the editors being subject to harsh jail terms. Regardless of this, the covers are bloody beautiful.
Druck Berlin 2011 will be held at the Stattbad in Wedding on 27th -28th August. It will be hosted by Berlin based screen printers ‘Mother-Drucker’.
