The Hippie Diaries - Travels from the early 1970s

Hi everyone,

Here's a bit of interesting stuff from the early 1970s. It's a couple of video extracts from the travel diaries of an influential Swiss art dealer gone hippie and heading east to Afghanistan, Nepal and SE Asia for a few years.

The book is an homage to Toni, who is 77 by now and, though disabled, still wandering the world in his head with the inner eye wide open, so to say.

Toni Gerber "Hills and Holes"; 362 facsimiles and photos from the Swiss hippie gallerist's travel diaries 1972-1976; edited and published in 2009 by Michael Krethlow and Reto Sorg, Edition Atelier Bern. To order the book write to: bern@krethlow.ch.


The edition is so small that there’s no way the editors can (or want to) make money from this, but we’d like people all over the world to see it:
