All issues published of this artists' periodical from the Drakabygget [Dragon's House in English] farm and commune in Skane, Sweden, started after Nash purchased the property in 1960, and featuring art, poetry, and manifestors from many of the figures connected with the Situationists, Gruppe Spur, and other movements in Scandinavia and abroad. The goal was for a communal experiment based on Situationist ideas. Jacqueline De Jong, Gordon Fazakarley, and Hardy Strid were present in the early days of th experiment; in an interview De Jong says the place "was, it became, it was a madhouse, it was a lunatic asylum, run by the inmates. All sorts of things happened, I don´ t know how much of it you can speak about."

Wraps of first issue partially split north of the upper staple, with small tears where the wraps have begun to pull away from staples, but still intact. Otherwise a very good. Item #28354
