Broodthaers Society of America
le ciel bleu
An elegant new arrival to our archive, acquired after a bit of sleuthing. Nine issues, all published in Brussels between February 22nd and April 19th 1945, at the tail end of WWII.

This is a complete set, in good but fragile condition, including a copy of the subscription reply card that was inserted into issue 2.

Excellent cartoons and illustrations accompany texts by and about Andre Breton, Lewis Carroll, Paul Colinet, Paul Eluard, Irène Hamoir, René Magritte, Marcel & Gabriel Piqueray, and Edgar Poe [sic]. Also featuring the very first published writing by the twenty-one-year old poet Marcel Broodthaers, here misprinted as Broodthaerts.

Come delve into it.
Brussels: 1945, French.
