|NO ISBN. NO AMAZON. NO SHOPS. EXCLUSIVE TO HEADPRESS.|
What with the Royal nuptials, the assassination of Osama Bin Laden, and the canonization of John Paul II, the Mainstream has had plenty to crow about this spring.
What about the Counterculture?
Well, with the release of HEADPRESS 2.4, it has something to celebrate too. And not only is our latest Headzine a bumper edition, with 76 pages bursting with groundbreaking countercultural prose and original artwork, but we’re confident it’s also the best Headzine yet, with writing on everything from Times Square to Arthur Lee, Hammer Films to, um, Pez. Available, as ever, in two equally delectable formats: (1) an absolutely FREE EZINE and (2) a full-colour, fully-illustrated, COLLECTOR EDITION, stamped and numbered hardback on heavy quality paper for £10.
(A word to the wise – we’ve now only a tiny stack of 2.3 left, and all the other sumptuously collectible Headzines are sold out, so don’t dawdle! Go!»)
