Gabrovo, Bulgaria: House of Humour and Satire, 1986. quarto (11.5"). Illustrated Card Covers. Near Fine 160 pp. illustrated throughout in colour and b&w. This journal was published twice yearly in Bulgarian, Russian, English and French with the stated aim of celebrating artists and writers whose humour had the potential to create international bonds: "an Institute which seeks to promote links between humourists all over the world and to internationalize the humour of different nations in a spirit of mutual understanding and peace." Contributions of art, essays, poetry and stories in this issue came from writers whose homes were, amongst other locations, in Italy, Hungary, Japan, Bulgaria, USSR, and Poland. The consistent theme is that there is reason for hope in the artistic and humourous expressions of the creative souls throughout the world. The text of this edition is entirely in English. Uncommon, especially in such condition. Because of its size, shipping, especially outside of North America, is likely to be surcharged.
