Here's a psychedelic feast-for-the-eyes in the form of underground press magazine Oz. Oz was possibly most famous for the prosecution of its editors in 1971 for obscenity and conspiracy to corrupt public morals, following publication of the Schoolkids issue of Oz (#28).

Now, in what we hope are more enlightened times, you can read your very own electronically preserved copy of Oz. A warning, gentle reader. Although not the infamous Schoolkids issue, this magazine no doubt contains “obscene, lewd, indecent and sexually perverted articles, cartoons and drawings with intent to debauch and corrupt the morals of children and other young persons and to arouse and implant in their minds lustful and perverted ideas”. Not only that, it deals with “homosexuality, lesbianism, sadism, perverted sexual practices and drug taking”. Beware!

Thanks to Darwination for the lovely edit on this copy of Oz #31.
