"In the 80′s during my childhood we lived in a neighborhood overrun with crime, drugs and poverty. Needing a way out I did what any kid living here would do to escape; I watched cartoons. Saving me from the dark downtrodden environment outside they were the light of my world. As the ancients gave worship to the daily life-giving light of the sun, I would praise the illuminating portal of television. This guiding light of inspiration shone on my face and stayed with me forever."
The Situationist Times ran between May 1962 and December 1964 in Hengelo, Copenhagen and Paris, in editions of about 1,000. Contributors to the heavily graphics-oriented publication included Noel Arnaud, Théo Wolvecamp, and Max Bucaille.
Boo-Hooray has produced a complete facsimile of The Situationist Times, Jacqueline De Jong’s self published periodical, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of its inaugural issue. The six original issues are reprinted in an edition of 900, bound individually and enclosed in a silk-screened slipcase. And the set also includes the never before released seventh issue and ephemera and interviews.

By reproducing the Benday dots of commercial printers, while harnessing them to decorative effect, Lichtenstein created works that had the appearance of having been mechanical produced.
