LOS ANGELES FREE PRESS #8 (LA: 10th September, 1964).

Tabloid newspaper format, 8pp. Ed. Art Kunkin. Front cover photograph by Charles Brittin.

A very early issue of 'The Freep', generally considered to be the first widely distributed underground newspaper. Its first issue, dated 23rd May, 1964 and entitled The Faire Free Press, with the logo Los Angeles Free Press appearing on an inside page, was sold at the annual Los Angeles Renaissance Pleasure Faire and May Market, a fund-raising event for listener-sponsored KPFK radio.

This issue, published less than four months later, features interviews with Dr. Albert Ellis, regarded as one of the founders of the sexual revolution, and Lorna Maitland, whose starring roles in Russ Meyer's sexploitation films helped popularise it.

Newsprint slightly age-toned, with faint central horizontal crease, o/w Very Good plus.
