Published anonymously by Ken Knabb and others, including Isaac Cronin, under the name Council for the Eruption of the Marvelous. Throughout 1970, the group produced this and several pamphlets; the present work is illustrated throughout with drawings, and typographically laid out like poetry. "We see subversion as a sort of phenomenological scalpel, cutting through the surface of the spectacle of the commodity & bringing to light all the most subtle presuppositions on which the society is based." OCLC finds only one copy.
