Oberbaum Linkeck Almanach 1965-1968
Berlin: RKL Presse EUPS, 1969. First edition. 4to, [105] pp., photographically illustrated wraps. The Oberbaum Press was one of the earliest and most important independent presses in West Germany. It was founded by Hartmut Sander and Martin Dürschlag and operated out of a former shoemaker's shop at Oberbaumstrasse 5 in Kreuzberg, on the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge itself, famous for being used for spie exchanges. The press was initially devoted to new literature - "Pop- Und Provo-Poems", as termed in an early advertisment - and was associated with Rolf-Dieter Brinkmann (who appears in this volume) and Peter Handke, before becoming more explicitly political, and laying the groundwork for some of the most important underground magazines, such as Linkeck, which the press produced, and which was co-edited by Sander as well. The volume includes Provo content, as well as pieces by Rudi Dutschke, Rolf Dieter Brinkmann, Peter Handke, Kommune 1, Malcolm X et al. Displayed throughout is a radical and sophisticated approach to typography and layout, especially with regard to the use of superimposed photographs and the layering of typeset and holographic texts - a palimpsest that in its shifts seems to become a seismic document of the late 60's. A key document of the era. [Brown pp. 130-31] A clean, near fine copy showing some light rubbing to extremities and a couple of faint pencil notations along upper margin; a bright and better than usual example.
