Real Free Press No. 1.

Amsterdam: Real Free Press, 1971. Newspaper size, 20 pages in self wrappers, illustrated throughout. Cartoons by Bud Fisher, (inlcuding interview with..); Harrison Cody; Percy Crosby + T.S Sullivant.

Real Free Press No. 4. Amsterdam: Real Free Press, 1971. Newspaper size, 24 pages in self wrappers, illustrated throughout. Cartoons by Robert Crumb, S. Clay Wilson, a centerfold drawing by Rupert v.d. Linden ( 'Inleiding bij een stripgeschiedenis van het anarchisme door Rudolf de Jong - strips taken form the French 'Pilote')

The first issue of the Real Free Press was of November 1968 - the business died around 1980. The height of the Underground Press. Hippie time. Run by Olaf Stoop and Martin Beumer, it grew out of the Provo scene and was the only publishing house I know of that ran on dope money. Their shop was affectionately known as boek en dopie among the clientèle. In the start, it was weed, but later this changed to cocaine, which took away all the fun: They never produced much after the Blue Lady really took over. The end really came when Olaf got busted in 1978, just about when we left Holland.
