First TEB ad on a magazine.

The first TEB ad on a magazine it was probably that published by "Albion" on May 1969, the same month when "Alchemy" was realised.

It was designed on b/w by Glen Sweeney, inspired by classical icon of the Buddha meditating, later modified and included as a sticker in the first album cover (see here on the left).

"Albion" magazine was  directed by Steve Pank - at that time promoter and driver of the group - consisting of stuffs about meditations, alternative arts, underground cultures.
Between the contributors also David Loxley, who designed the cover of "Alchemy".
