Avant Garde magazine was published from January 1968 until July 1971. The magazine was the third collaboration between editor Ralph Ginzburg and art director Herb Lubalin, who had previously worked together on Eros and Fact. Avant Garde was beautifully designed and featured inventive typography, unique art, erotic content, and radical politics critical of the US government and society. After Lubalin created the Avant Garde logo and he was inspired to create the matching iconic font. It was forced to cease publication after only 16 issues when Ginzburg lost his long-running legal battle against the US government over obscenity charges, partially stemming from the publication of Eros.
