Psychedelic Poetry

It's World That Makes The Love Go Round - front

It's World That Makes The Love Go Round - Poems from Breakthru, published by Corgi Books 1968.

I scanned this book cover ages ago, and annoyingly I don't have it in my possession anymore so I can't post any of the slightly dodgy poetry compiled from Breakthru International Poetry Magazine, but I think the artwork is too cool not to share! This was actually featured in the Miller's Antiques Collecting the 1960s book, in this book it is valued at £120 I think, but I picked this up for £3 and the values in that book are rather out of date now and were a bit random at the time also. The Miller's book also stated that the artwork was by renowned 60s counter culture artists Hapshash and the Coloured Coat, although I can't say I'm too convinced, it is quite fab none the less!

Oh I love it! I am a bit obsessed with Sixties book covers. I keep meaning to scan in 'Baby Love' which has the most amazing black and white psychedelic line drawing cover!
