"Yarrowstalks was a blend of artwork and creative writing. It was not radical politically, but rather a gently [sic] publication, with visually pleasing graphics and an easy editorial style. The paper, following the lead of editor and publisher Brian Zahn, moved toward Eastern philosophies. It was available at universities, sympathetic bookshops, and at 'head' shops."--Summary of Yarrowstalks (Philadelphia, Pa.) Records, Temple University.
