This set is empty.

The cult 1960s magazine Aspen featured contributions by prolific artists, musicians and writers including Peter Blake, William S. Burroughs, John Cage, Ossie Clark, Marcel Duchamp, David Hockney, John Lennon, Lou Reed and Yoko Ono.

Issued in a box, Aspen was one of the first multimedia magazines and became a time capsule of the period.

It was conceived by Phyllis Johnson, a former editor for Women’s Wear Daily and Advertising Age, and inspired by Aspen, Colorado, a popular ski resort at the time.

Each distinctive issue had a different editor and designer who took complete control of the magazine.
