[PERIODICAL] - RAGS MAGAZINE, 1970 - 1971
Estimate: $1,200 - $1,400
    Description: Rags Magazine was a counter-culture fashion magazine founded by Rolling Stone photographer Baron Wolman, based out of San Francisco, and associated with the underground press movement. A rotating staff included Mary Peacock and Daphne Davis as editors, and Barbara Kruger as an art director. Printed on newsprint, Rags covered counter-culture fashion in a way no other fashion magazine was doing at the time, focusing on street-style instead of big name fashion brands or trends, and emphasizing photography and art in relation to fashion. With writing that was often politically radical, the publication captured the countercultural spirit of the early 1970s underground. Despite only running for one year, it remains an influential magazine whose innovative form and content were ahead of their time. This set includes the first twelve of thirteen published issues of Rags, missing the final June 1971 issue.
