Rather sensational copy of this Danish photobook documentary made as a celebration of the new free hippie society in the making in the north of Jutland in Denmark. Sweet counter culture! 1968 was the formation of Association of The New Society in Copenhagen. 1969 / 1970 John Lennon and Yoko Ono visted Nordenfjord World University (Verdensuniversitetet) part of the groups activity in Jutland. 1970 The association The New Society purchased of 40 – 47 acres in Han District, between Froestrup and Oesterild. Thylejren was also called Froestrup camp after the name of the nearest village, Froestrup, here they would try to live in a new way. In 1970, escalated the association’s activities in a large-scale summer festival that not only lasted 3 days, as it is common for festivals, but the entire 10 weeks. The goal was to explore alternative ways of being together in order to find new models of society.The first festival had 3,000 participants and thousands of visitors and curious to visit over the summer. The present publication is the original documentation of that summer. Extremely scarce!
