The Smudge is a monthly newspaper offering articles, interviews, comics, and advice from a range of unique thinkers and creators. At a time when many of us have been searching for ways to contribute, The Smudge decided they'd use the tool they know best: PRINT.
From The Smudge, "We're not activists, we're not editors, but we have a printer and we know how to use it. So, in the spirit of the underground and alternative presses of the 60's and 70's, we hope to offer a unique voice and a different perspective on the issues and events that affect us all. And hopefully we can squeeze some good comics in there as well."
From Merry Jane, the leading voice in cannabis culture launched by world-renowned rap icon Snoop Dogg.

Artist Peter Coffin began his work with the iconic designs of LA’s Colby Poster Printing Company in 2008. Over the years, he solicited friends to contribute their dream concerts—invented lineups for impossible gigs—and combined them with the print shop’s famously eye-popping poster backgrounds, resulting inImaginary Concerts: a stirring, two-volume celebration of music’s vast conceptual universe. Featuring 160 concert lineups from a roster of artists, authors and daydreamers including Yoko Ono, Larry Clark, Quasimoto, Genesis P-Orridge and dozens of others,Imaginary Concerts: Volumes One and Two transport the reader into an uncannily evocative, nostalgia-tinged and personally revealing realm of musical what-ifs.

Altered States: The Library of Julio Santo Domingo
Julio Mario Santo Domingo (1957-2009) was a collector and visionary who filled his homes and warehouses with the world’s greatest private collection related to the subjects of drugs, sex, magic, and rock and roll. A library of more than 50,000 items, it contained everything from rare manuscripts and photos to posters, bottles, letters, opium pipes, and pinball machines. Exploring the innumerable influences of mind-enhancing drugs on art, science, and politics over the centuries, Santo Domingo’s collection contained work by diverse figures including Andy Warhol, Timothy Leary, Sigmund Freud, the Marquis de Sade, Charles Baudelaire, Allen Ginsberg, the Rolling Stones, Aleister Crowley, and many more. This extraordinary collection is vividly documented inAltered States: The Library of Julio Santo Domingo.
At once comprehensive and fantastical, informative and hallucinatory, this beautifully-designed book highlights pieces from the collection to create a visually stunning and endlessly surprising celebration of the Santo Domingo library. Shedding light on an often misunderstood force in history,Altered Statesis an unprecedented insight into the effect of drugs on life, politics and popular culture.
