Charlie Kaputt! No. 1

Berlin: Buchloh, 1968. Tabloid format, four leaves offset printed in b/w on newsprint, and stab-stapled. Text in German.

The debut issue of one of the most provocative and strikingly designed German radical periodicals of the 1960's, featuring a cover illustration with cartoon instructions for how to make a molotov cocktail out of an Esso bottle (first drink), and coverage of the Frankfurt department arsons, a debate over the use of firearms in Germany, with reference to their use by African American revolutionaries in the US, and twelve commandments for protestors.

Single faint old fold line, faint toning, else a remarkably well-preserved, near fine copy. Due to the stab-stapled format - a highly unusual binding format for newsprint - intact examples are scarce. This is the best example we've seen. Item #25780
