A substantial run of this avant-garde youth magazine of the Mimeograph Revolution out of Leiden with a Surrealist bent, notable for including the first publications of a young Paul Verhoeven, long before Total Recall, Turkish Delight, and Robocop. According to Verhoeven's bibliographer, Rob Scheers, the young Verhoeven was welcomed for his knowledge of both film and French culture. Three Surrealist drawings by Verhoeven are included in these issues, the cover of no. 3, and two drawings on the inside covers of no. 5.
