Each issue limited to 1000-2000 copies. Issue no. 5 with the original silver sticker attaching the integral dust jacket to the wraps, as issued. Beginning with the third issue each issue had a theme, such as the Typology of Knots (no. 3), Labyrinths (no. 4), and chains (no. 5). The final number consists of 33 lithographs. A 7th issue was proposed but not originally published.
All issues published of the Situationist periodical edited by the immensely talented Jacqueline de Jong, who had joined the IS in 1960, but resigned following the expulsion of the Gruppe Spur. The Situationist Times, the first issue which she issued after her resignation, is a striking achievement which represents a fascinating counterpoint to the International Situationniste journal, and a creative path forward past the sectarian fallout of the IS.
The graphic design of the periodical likely influenced some of the designs for the posters of the movements of May 1968, which De Jong participated in.
These issues generally very good, with some moderate creasing and fading to wraps. Issue no. 5 shows somewhat heavier wear, with some crumpling to the integral dust jacket and a touch of chipping to extremities, along with a pencil inscription in an unknown hand to the first page. No. 3 shows some droplet staining and a bit of grubbiness to the wraps. The final issue has a crease to spine, but the fragile binding is still sturdy. Item #25773
