No. 1 ( Paris, 1922) [PDF, 4.1mb]

The first and only issue of a "transparent newspaper" published by Tristan Tzara in April, 1922 in reply to André Breton's attacks on him in the March 2nd issue of Comoedia. It contains texts by Éluard, Ribemont-Dessaignes, Satie, Fraenkel, Huidobro, Péret, Soupault, Duchamp, etc. The cover design by Tzara is one of the best-known and most appealing graphic inventions of Paris Dada. The affair came to an end on the 'Bearded Heart Evening' at the Michel Theatre on July 6, 1923.
