Communes: 1970s Journal of the Commune Movement

I don't think I would have coped very well living in a commune. From a brief experience of 'communal' living as a student I would have been fairly sure of this before this afternoon. But then these magazines came across my desk. Basically home published affairs from the early 1970s Communes is the Journal of The Commune Movement and having read through some of them today I think I can be doubly sure I wouldn't have coped very well with commune life: good to know! However, what I did enjoy was the artwork in these, some of it, particularly on the inside where it was very difficult to scan was exceptionally good and from numerous different contributors not just one in-house illustrator. Much as I don't want to do it myself, there's something quite refreshing reading about a form of life so idealistic and so alien to what most of us know.
