Clear Creek. The Environmental Viewpoint 1-18 [Complete]

San Francisco: Clear Creek Associates, 1971-72. First edition. First nine issues in tabloid format, subsequent issues saddle-stapled. Offset printed in black and white on newsprint with spot color covers. Printed on recycled paper.

A complete run of this ambitious periodical emerging from the early 1970's ecological movement, and which, in the early issues emulated Rolling Stone as a touchpoint. Though the periodical onyl lasted for two years, the 18 issues here are one of the most substantial environmental publications of the decade,

"As a movement, ecology is raw, uneven and disjointed, carrying with it the prejudices of abandoned life-styles, of bitter experiences in working with authority, of doubt, betrayal and the burden of immense complexities as yet unraveled. Uniformly, there is a need for communication, for facts, vision, endorsment, action, warnings and counsel. The uplift comes from the feeling and belief in the beauty of being alove and of sharing that." - from the editorial in no. 1.

The all-encompassing approach to the concept ecology allowed the periodical to include a wide variety of articles, from lifestyle tips to economics, oil, land ownership, water rights, unions and ecology, organic food, organic gardening, smart shopping, beer recipes, architecture, communes, and poetry and art.

With contributions from Stewart Brand, Gary Snyder, Michael McClure, Charles Simic, Gino August Sky, Robert Redford, Pete Seeger, Orvelle Schell, John Brandi,

and articles on Paolo Soleri, Constantinos Doxiadis, Biodactics, Black Ecology, population control, bicycling New York, natural hair care, the Stockholm Environmental Conference, dentistry, animal behavior, etc.

Some moderate toning, as expected given the recycled newsprint, otherwise a clean, complete, near fine set. Item #29291
