A set of three volumes of a magazine, published by Slovenian immigrants in Argentina, includes poems, short stories, articles and images of contemporary sculpture, paintings and contemporary architectural projects.

The design with beautiful mid-century original colour linocuts on covers was made by an Slovenian émigré artist Bara Remec, who received her education at the Art Academy of Zagreb under Ivan Mestrovic. Remec, based in Ljubljana, left her homeland together with her father, sister Vera and her husband Tine Debeljak an author and editor, in May 1945, just days before the liberation of the city. They have continued with their work in refugee centres in Austria, Rome, and later in Argentina.

In Buenos Aires Bara Remec became one of the most active émigré book illustrators of the post war era in Buenos Aires. She was also working as a painted and ceramic designer.  

The magazine was issued from 1954 until today, with some breaks and with last numbers issued only once per year. The early issues of this magazine are rare. We could only trace separate issues in different libraries worldwide.
