“Home Grown was a breakthrough magazine of the 1970s that represented a defining moment in British underground culture. This first issue was published in June 1977 after Lee Harris compiled a collection of photos and writings for an event to celebrate 10 years of the ‘Summer of Love’ at the Roundhouse, London. When the event failed to materialize however, Lee used his collection instead to publish Home Grown. Europes first dope magazine dealing with cannabis and the psychedelic experience, Home Grown featured leading artists, writers and poets such as George Melly, Heathcote Williams, Harry Shapiro, Timothy Leary, Michael Hollingshead and Bryan Talbot. Altogether 10 issues were published which sold in Europe, the US, Canada and Australia, and are now highly collectable. This first way out issue features artists Bryan Talbot, Hamish, Chris Morton, Mike J. Weller, Nick Kavanagh, Antonio Ghura and others.
