Mark McCloud and his Blotter Barn

Juxtapoz has an interview with consciousness expander Mark McCloud who, according to some reports, has a collection of blotter paper--the modicum of choice for LSD consumption for some four decades now--more complete than the FBI and DEA. The article is fascinating, as are the images.

Some furthur examples from McCloud's Blotter Barn site, where you can order prints in varying sizes (sans lysergic acid diethylamide, of course):

Like it or not, this is really a snapshot of one of the most controversial aspects of a hugely important counterculture and the art it inspired. I'm really quite taken with some of these prints and the detail that goes into their production.
