A complete run of the avant-garde journal, under the editorial direction of Riewart Tode and Hartmut Konig, offering cutting-edge poetry, prose, and criticism, some of which was informed by radical politics, presented in a rough-hewn, experimental manner, with some of the writings in typescript, some in the hand of the author, and some in various other formats including abstract concrete poems, accompanied by numerous original graphic works (some in color), many of which are signed by the artists. Various sizes and formats: 4to., oblong 4to., 8vo. Stapled wrpps. and perfect bound. Last couple of pages of issue no. 0 separated from staples but present, some minor foxing to cover. Wanderup, Germany 1963-1968. Each issue published in a very limited edition, ranging up to 200 copies.

A very rare and ambitious journal reflecting the tumultuous mood of the mid-1960's, influenced by the Beat movement in the United States. Literary contributors include U. Raschke, Tim Ulrichs, K. D. Goerdeler, P. G. Hübsch, V. Scherliess, V. Braun, and Ingo Cesaro; graphics are by Jochen-Harro Bierzunski, K.-O. Kahrman, Tim Ulrichs, Jane Balsgaard, Norbert Richter, et al. Presented in various formats, mostly on rough paper printed recto only; the exception is issue #7/8, which is perfect bound, printed recto and verso, and presents an anthology of writings by 39 authors, all against the war in Vietnam. Very scarce; as of May 2019, WorldCat locates only three complete runs in North America. Book ID: 50022
