Vintage Collectibles - Magazines - Surfer Magazine - 1970's
"Variations on a theme -- the Rorschach-like design features Pat Tobin at Sunset Cliffs."
Includes "Progressing" by Ryan Dotson, "The Crackerjack Conspiracy" by Mickey Dora (a hilarious must-read!), "What is Surfing: Vectors and Variations," "North Shore Reflections" by Nat Young, and a psychedelic "Murphy" by Rick Griffin, of course. Plus poetry, SURFER Photography, Competition '69, Design Forum, SurfToons, bodyboarding, and "Gaudy Metal and Ego Trips" by Wayne Lynch.
This is undoubtedly an essential issue for any collector of SURFER Magazine, and difficult to find in good condition. Minor pulling at staples, due in this case to 130 pages saddle stitched. In the next issue, even larger, the publisher went to a squared off, glued binding instead.
It's a Betty-minus, 70 to 75 percent of mint. Some pulling at staples and spine wear. Minor soiling and bottom right corner of cover has small crease. No torn or missing pages and no cutouts.
Packaged in an archival-quality clear plastic sleeve with an acid-free mat backing board.
