What can we do when the living nightmare that we wake up to is also the golden dawn at the end of time?

In this issue, we floated a bottle out to sea, a memory of Monica Vitti. And we picked up a stack of lost culture. The 1960s and 70s issues of Today’s World, a Chinese-language magazine published in Taiwan. What a flashback – to 1969 – when pschedelia in music and poster art flourished among the hippies in the Haight. How does the square, Nixon-endorsing magazine present hallucinogen-chomping freaks and their psycho-delicious trance art? Find in in ZP #16.
