The Situationist Times was an international, English-language periodical created and edited by Jacqueline de Jong, of which six issues were published between 1962 and 1967. A radical compendium using such Situationist tactics as détournement and a printed form of dérive, the journal included essays, artwork, found images, and quotations concerned with such issues as topology, politics, and spectacle culture.

This first issue of The Situationist Times, an avant-garde periodical that focused on art and politics. Articles in German, French, and English. Illustrated, with collages and comics.
