9781463569662: The San Francisco Oracle

A complete copy of the legendary psychedelic underground newspaper originally published in the Haight Ashbury during the Summer of Love The San Francisco Oracle, published in the Haight Ashbury from 1966 to 1968, was one of the most unique and beautiful publications of the '60s. It is remembered for its extraordinary graphic design by major San Francisco artists, its rainbow colors and the cultural explorations and breakthroughs in its articles, interviews and poetry. This book contains each and every page of all 12 issues printed – in all their original brilliance “If the New Age Movement is a religion, these idealistic explorations into the personal experience and social implications of ‘mind expansion’ are part of its cannon. From the Aquarian Age to Native American shamanism, Eastern mysticism, communal living, utopian revolution, sexual liberation, ecological awareness and the socio-spiritual implications of LSD, The Oracle provides source documents of an eclectic spirituality and social philosophy that continue to exert a widespread – albeit subtle – influence on American society.” - The San Francisco Chronicle “The Fantastic graphics of The Oracle, many wrapped around pages or double spreads of text, were mostly printed in black and white, but many glowed in deep reds, fuchsias, blues, oranges and yellows produced in a printing process now extinct. Regent Press has brought them back to life through what must have been maddeningly laborious handwork on the press; here indeed is the old Oracle in all its opulence. Open any page and you are back on the streets of the Haight Ashbury in as time when that tiny urban spot was the Olympus of the newborn world.” - The New York Times Sunday Book Review

Review:

If the New Age Movement is a religion, these idealistic explorations into the personal experience and social implications of 'mind expansion'are part of its canon. From the Aquarian Age to Native American shamanism, Eastern mysticism, communal living, utopian revolution, sexual liberation, ecological awareness and the socio-spiritual implications of psychedelics, the Oracle provides source documents of an eclectic spirituality and social philosophy that continue to exert a widespread;albeit subtle;influence on American society. -- The San Francisco Chronicle

The fantastic graphics of the Oracle, many wrapped around pages or double spreads of text, were mostly printed in black and white, but many glowed in deep reds, fuchsias, blues, oranges and yellows produced in a printing process now extinct. Regent Press has brought them back to life through what must have been maddeningly laborious handwork on the press; here indeed is the old Oracle in all its Oriental opulence. Open any page and you are back on the streets of the Haight-Ashbury in a time when that tiny urban spot was the Olympus of the newborn world. -- The New York Times Sunday Book Review

From Library Journal:

This full-color re-creation in book form of all 12 issues of the psychedelic newspaper published in Haight-Ashbury from 1966 to 1968 provides a unique historical record for students of the 1960s, representing the works of the Beat poets, the hippies, and the followers of the anti-war movement. Famous for publishing such writers as Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder, William Burroughs, Alan Watts, Timothy Leary, Buckminster Fuller, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, the tabloid also was well-known for its artwork, graphic designs, and rainbow colors. Editor Cohen, who was one of the paper's founders, contributes a fascinating history of the publication and its creators and contributors. Despite a table of contents, the book's usefulness as a reference is weakened by the lack of an index, and its $175 price (due to the archival paper used to preserve the book's historical value) makes this facsimile edition an optional purchase for libraries.
