In 1966 Barry Miles and John `Hoppy’ Hopkins decided to start a newspaper. They called it International Times and launched it in April. It was the first British underground newspaper, and began a news media revolution. This catalogue accompanies the exhibition of the same name and displays the covers of every British underground paper that launched in the 1960s: ‘International Times’, ‘Oz’, ‘Friends/Frendz’, ‘Gandalf’s Garden’, ‘Black Dwarf’ and ‘Ink’. It also includes the comic books that grew out of the papers, and various examples of the graphics, ads, posters and flyers produced by each publication.
