How To Place An Order   Magazine Title Index   Magazine Condition Grading

Avant Garde, edited by the legendary Ralph Ginzburg, was notable for graphic and logogram design by Herb Lubalin.  While it could not be termed obscene, but it was filled with creative imagery often caustically critical of American society and government, sexual themes, and (for the time) crude language. Only 14 issues were published.
