From a loose butterpaper insert : 'Dutch wallpaper catalogue presented as a limited edition artists' book. Samples are actual in production 1968 Dutch wallpapers. V. scarce.' [Peter Myers]
Translated from the Dutch on reverse of cover: 'Barbarber 59 magazine for texts appears monthly, April 1968. Editors: J. Bernlef, G. Brands en K. Schippers. Unsolicited contributions, which are not accompanied by return port, are not returned.'
From the Dutch wikipedia entry on Barbarber: 'Barbarber was founded in 1958 by J. Bernlef , K. Schippers and G. Brands and has existed until 1972 . In total 87 editions appeared. Most songs have an elongated format: a length-folded A-four.The magazine focused on publishing all possible texts : poems and stories, but also drawings and photographs . The texts are often commonplace, but have a strong poetic meaning... They argued for realism, for a magnifying glass for everyday reality. Barbarber represents the international movement of neorealism. One of the text forms that was available in Barbarber was the readymade, a 'found' text, such as a shopping list or a note that was found somewhere. With the attention of the poet, such a text is given a poetic meaning. Buddingh, Bernlef and Schippers are well-known practitioners of this art form.' Accessed 12/4/18.
