OZ magazine, London 1967-1973

In The Guardian, Chitra Ramaswamy describes the London magazine as “the icon – and the enfant terrible – of the underground press. Produced in a basement flat off Notting Hill Gate, Oz was soon renowned for psychedelic covers by pop artist Martin Sharp, cartoons by Robert Crumb, radical feminist manifestos by Germaine Greer, and anything else that would send the establishment apoplectic.

By August 1971, it had been the subject of the longest obscenity trial in British history. It doesn’t get more 60s than that.”             Even its print run, which began in 1967 and ended in 1973, perfectly brackets the period people really talk about when they talk about the sixties.

Unfortunately, I can’t figure out how to link each of the above covers to the individual issues, so you’ll have to go to Australia to read each issue.
