#23: Collages, typos, and locations

FURORE #23 (January, 2018) is here. Furore is a gazette compiled and designed by Piet Schreuders and published at highly irregular intervals since 1975.

The cover story (by L. H. Wiener) is an essay about the three pictures on the cover of Mandarijnen op zwavelzuur, the legendary pamphlet by Willem Frederik Hermans from 1963. Where did the photos in this collage originate, and was the bird an ordinary seagull (as Hermans claimed) or an American eagle? FURORE launched a full-scale investigation and presents the results.

This limited edition (1,000 copies) is a true collector’s item, not only because of its contents but also because of its cover, which has a hole in the shape of a woman’s body.

Also in this issue:
• Mark Lewisohn revisits the Yorskhire locations of the classic tv-series Ripping Yarns;
• A letter from comic artist Mark Smeets (1942–1999), with explanatory notes;
• Film historian Richard W. Bann on the restoration of Hopalong Cassidy;
• How to faithfully recreate a photograph from 1955;
• Frits Marnix Woudstra remembers artist Roland Sips;
• Deirdre Harris photographs typos in San Francisco pavements!
