Eye Magazine was a short-lived counterculture focused magazine which began in March 1968. It appealed largely to college students and it covered fashion, music, and politics. It nearly always had a large pull-out poster of a famous person or art, on one occasion a comic, and once even a record. It was a large magazine, formatted like Life, and had tons of color pictures and articles. Jim Morrison even wrote an article for the magazine. Some say that Eye is a prime example of consumerism cashing in on the youth boom, but some find the magazine to bring back opulent memories. Fifteen issues were published before its end in May 1969.
