Part tool catalog, part survival manual and part psychedelic novel, The Last Whole Earth Catalog is a snapshot of human psyche circa 1972.
There is much unmined treasure in this pulp catalog, especially for those interested in connectivity, systems design and sustainability.
448 pages, amply illustrated, generous editorial content includes everything from a organic recipes to lessons in economics and philosophy. Printed on newsprint.
But, am I the only one to remember "Divine Right's Trip" with DR himself, his gf Estelle, and DR's microbus "Urge"? It co-starred "The Greek" whose mission in life was to forget his name. It also had a part where DR, Estelle, and Urge were camping and the guy next to them invited them to dinner and to watch tv. DR commented up watching "Wagon Train" on a tv with a 5 or 7 inch screen "I'm watching the world's smallest wagon train on the world's smallest prairie."
One time, in Cincinnati, DR was in a bathroom thinking (if you could call it that) about "Cincinnati" and how balanced it was. In his drug induced state he imagined himself wear some ex football coach's pants and shirt and wrote in the bathroom "Help, I am a balance freak wearing a dead football coach's pants." I must've written that a few hundred times in public bathrooms.
Now I just write "WORRYING" under the word STOP on stop signs.
Don't mourn, organize!
