Sold out
The Book Publishing Company, ca. 1974. Softcover. Unpaginated, circa 104 pages. 28 x 21,5 cm. Text in English. Used. VG · Minor signs of wear. This book is like the "bible" of The Farm, a famous spiritual commune in 1970 founded in 1971 by Stephen Ganskin, an American counterculture Hippie icon, near the town of Summertown, Tennessee. The Farm had its own publishing house, electrical and alternative energy crew, composting crew, farming crew, radio and communications, music band, construction crew, laundromat, bakery, school... and this book talk about all of this. Energy and spirituality, as well as aspects of communal life, maternity, their vegan diet and much more. A publication with a beautiful psychedelic design and suggestive photographs of life in harmony with the Earth, nature and the community. Delightful and life-affirming. Still relevant today... maybe especially in this day and age!
