Witte Krant / Papieren Tijger (1967-1968) Complete set of 9 issues
Provo-related Dutch underground magazine
Witte Krant / Papieren Tijger (White Paper / Paper Tiger), a Provo-related Dutch underground magazine, that advertised itself as a magazine that covers ‘Nieuws over de sosjale revoluutsie in de derde wereld, de kulturele revoluutsie in de westerse asfaltjunkels, de psiegedeliese revoluutsie in de underground, de lieve revoluutsie in Amsterdam’ (News about the social revolution in the third world, the cultural revolution in the Western asphalt jungles, the psychedelic revolution in the underground, the love revolution in Amsterdam’). The links with the Provo movement were obvious: Members of the editorial board were active in the Provo movement and the first issue was published less than two weeks after the abolition of Provo.
A complete set of 9 issues is offered.
