i'm seriously in a very anti war mode at the moment, between reading slaughterhouse 5 and finding these amazing vintage magazines that once belonged to my grandfather. As my mom has been cleaning out our house and preparing to move to a new place she has unearthed some old editions of Avante Garde magazine. According to wikipedia Avante Garde magazine was published between 1968 and 1971, in the midsts of the cold war. It's filled with images and article that some might find obscene now, and I can only imagine their impact in the 1970's. Apparently an article written by supreme court justice William O. Douglas was used as evidence during his attempted impeachment. Yeah, that's edgy.
My favorite parts of the magazines though are the imagines of course, which art graphic and mostly done in the pop art style. Luckily there's a duplicate of one of the magazines so I'm eager to rip out the pages and decorate my dorm room which I move into a week from Monday!
these are lost of stolen pictures... and i'm sorry for not giving credit or asking permission or whatever... but i'm also lazy and don't take credit for any of these pictures, and i'm sure whoever posted them online initially didn't call up the person who copywrited (copywrote?) the mag to begin with so whatever.
