Dear readers,

I received a query from a scholar regarding the Internationale Lettriste and its potential relationship with the Egyptian revolution.

Could readers please share insights on the following:

  1. Is the man pictured  here (from the first issue of Internationale Lettriste, 1952) is indeed  Gamal Abdel Nasser? How do we know for sure?
  2. What was the Internationale Lettriste‘s stance on Nasser and Egyptian politics in general? Are there specific references in Internationale Lettriste or Potlatch?

Thanks in advance. I will convey whatever information is shared to the aforementioned scholar or put you directly in touch with her.
