[Internationale Situationniste] Internationale Situationniste: Bulletin central des sections de l’Internationale Situationniste (no.1-8) then “Revue de la section francaise” (no.9-12).
Paris: Internationale Situationniste, 1958 to 1969. 24.5 x 16.5 cm stapled pamphlets, 33-116 p. Metallic covers of different colours with text in black.

Internationale Situationniste was the main vehicle used by the I.S. and its members to carry the organization’s theoritical messages, as well as its view on current events and society at large. The publication initially had a small to medium run but, as the movement gained visibility starting around 1967 – when Debord released La Societe du Spectacle and Vaneigem his Traité de savoir-vivre à l’usage des jeunes générations – it increased substantially. As such, Issue 11 was printed in 5,000 copies and issue 12 in 10,000 copies (Raspaud & Voyer, 120-126)

Complete sets of the original review are difficult (and often expensive) to come by. Thankfully, facsimile reprints of all 12 issues were made available by Van Gennep (1971), Champ Libre (1975), Fayard (1997) and la Bibliotheque Fantastique (2000s). Since “All texts published in Internationale Situationniste may be freely reproduced, translated and adapted, even without indication of origin” (Internationale Situationniste no.2), the full text is also available online.
