ABOUT THE "BOOK" (CD-ROM)
The San Francisco Oracle, originally published in the Haight Ashbury from 1966 to 1968, was one of
the most unique and beautiful publications of the 60s. It is remembered for its extraordinary
graphic design by major San Francisco artists, its rainbow colors and the cultural explorations of
breakthroughs in its articles, interviews and poetry. The San Francisco Oracle Facsimile Edition,
published by Regent Press in 1991, was a full color recreation in book form this legendary
newspaper and received enormous praise from the media on its release. The Facsimile Edition has
gone out of print and has itself become a rare book. This CD-Rom contains every page of The
Facsimile Edition, including all the original issues of The Oracle plus all the additional
historical commentary, which can be viewed on a home computer and printed on a desktop printer. In
addition, there is a DVD with a half hour interview with Allen Cohen, the original editor and
founder of The Oracle, as well as the video Oracle Rising by Claire Burch, about the Haight Ashbury
and the creation of The Oracle newspaper.

About the Author

The Oracle was edited by Allen Cohen, the San Francisco poet and social activist. However, it was a forum for some of the most innovative thinking and design of its era, boasting among its contributors Alan Watts, Allen Ginsberg, Rick Griffin, Gary Snyder, Stephen Levine, Buckminster Fuller, Lenore Kandel, Michael McClure, Stanley Mouse, William Burrougs, and a complement of less celebrated but equally inspired poets, street philosophers, collagists, acidheads, astrologers, and assorted gurus, as well as dozens of rank-and file hippies from all over.
