The Thistle was the main student literary magazine that was published between 1957-1983. By the late 1960s, even The Thistle had it's own edgier offshoots such as Rabadash (1968-1969) and Wooster Survival Manual (1969).

This volume of The Thistle was published in the spring of 1970. The cover of this magazine is a close-up white and light blue image of an eye with the title "intointo" in the corner. The table of contents can be found in the middle of the magazine, on page 24. Here the titles of the pieces are listed below the names of the various authors. This issue is almost entirely made up of poetry. The poems vary in topic and theme and are sometimes stylized in non-traditional ways. Topics covered in the poems include love, nature, politics, race, religion, and childhood among many more. The magazine is printed on white paper with black ink, and the middle half of the booklet is printed on light blue paper. The poems are broken up by drawings, sketches, and photographs. There is also an advertisement for sessions offered by the college about participation in politics rather than just demonstrations.
