Fuck You: A Magazine of the Arts was a literary magazine founded in 1962 by the poet Ed Sanders on the Lower East Side of New York City. Sanders later co-founded the musical group The Fugs. Sanders produced thirteen issues of Fuck You: A Magazine of the Arts from 1962 to 1965.

The credo for the magazine, originated by Sanders, was I'll print anything. Fuck You: A Magazine of the Arts was produced on a mimeograph machine and printed on multi-colored construction paper.

Legacy[edit]

Fuck You: A Magazine of the Arts was a core publication in the movement known as the Mimeo Revolution.[1] It was dedicated to free expression, and especially defying the taboos around sex and drugs, advocating free love promiscuity and the use of psychedelics long before those were picked up by the more widespread countercultural movements of the late Sixties. Ed Sanders and his collaborators served as a bridge between the Beat generation of the Fifties and the later Hippie counterculture of the mid Sixties.
