Martin Sharp, Richard Neville, and Richard Walsh rose to prominence in Australia in the 1960s after they founded the famous magazine, Oz. They were twice charged with printing an obscene publication and provoked much controversy. Sharp was best-known for the psychedelic posters and album covers he designed for musicians, including Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, and Cream. Very scarce; although quite common in Australia, as of February 2017, WorldCat locates only one incomplete holding in North America.
