A complete run of the three issues of the radical anarchist, situationist, and artistic periodical published at the time of and following the student-led unrest in Paris 1968, each issue presenting collaboratively edited writings and visual art by noted cultural figures, profusely illustrated throughout. Original boards portfolios with original labels, contents loose as issued. Montpellier (Editions Fata Morgana) 1968. Issue #1, 1 of 130 copies; Issue #2 H.C. (200 numbered copies), Issue #3, 1 of 200 copies. An extremely rare cultural document reflecting the free-wheeling spirit of the moment in both content and presentation. The first issue presents 11 poems by Michel Butor, with calligraphy, drawings and prints by Pierre Alechinsky, Jacques Herold, and Bernard Dufour; the second includes contributions by Jean Pierre Faye, Claude Ollier, Maurice Roche, Roberto Matta, and Dufour; the final issue includes texts by Pierre Guyotat, Denis Roche, Romain Weingarten, and Kateb Yacine, with illustrations by Dufour, Wifredo Lam, Francois Lunven, and Ipousteguy. A fine set of a document emblematic of the turmoil of 1968. Very scarce; although scattered single issues and later reprints exist, as of February 2016 WorldCat locates only a single complete and original run in North America. (Inventory #: 46333)
