The Antwerp Publisher ‘Ontwikkeling’ took care of printing and distribution of this legendary underground magazine. A copy of Gnaoua is to be seen in Daniel Kramer’s photograph on the front cover of Bob Dylan’s record sleeve ‘Bringing it all back home’ (1965). Look for it on the mantelpiece!
This is the second edition (not stated) of Gnaoua that was printed in June 1964 and differs only from the first (April 1964) in two small text corrections on pages 87 and 101.
Excellent copy in mint condition.
