AVANT GARDE. US. JAN 1968 - SUM 1971. Avant Garde was a visually exciting contribution to the swingin' 60s.

Avant Garde lasted only 14 issues, but it made a big noise in the magazine world. It was a hardbound quarterly, presenting mostly erotic and anti-establishment material,its design innovation was greatly admired by the creative community.
