These are Situationist Times! Edited with text by Ellef Prestsæter. $45, 352 pages, mostly color. Paperback Published by Torpedo Press.

This is a fascinating book which reprints large amounts of material from the 1962-67 publication The Situationist Times, edited by artist Jacqueline De Jong. Both text and visuals collided in this publication, with contributions from Aldo Van Eyck, Asger Jorn, Max Bucaille, Pierre Alechinsky and Boris Vian, among others. Some might consider this on the outskirts of what might be considered relevant to the history of comics, but the passionate focus on both words and imagery say otherwise, for our purposes. Includes never before seen material organized by De Jong in the 70s for a planned 7th issue.
