Kampfreime (Combat Rhymes)

Uwe Wandrey


Edition : First / Hamburg / Quer Verlag / 1968 / Softcover. / VG+
16mo. Unpaginated. Stapled wraps bound in steel with red tape. Text in German. With ‘Notwehrtauglich’ sticker (suitable for self defense) to inside cover.

A ‘handy, sharp-edged combat edition for the revolutionary resistance phase.’ and a real curio from the West German student revolution. Wandrey’s book of thematically arranged potential protest slogans is in itself full of humour and wordplay, intended to be disseminated all over the country, but the form of the book itself is the real genius here. 2 sharp edges and a slightly curved spine, so that the book can be used to scrape and tear away posters, damage property or if the worst comes to the worst used as a tool of self defence. Another brilliant piece of the 1968 puzzle.
