To mark the 50th anniversary of its inaugural issue Boo-Hooray produced a complete facsimile of The Situationist Times, Jacqueline De Jong's self published periodical.

De Jong, a Duth artist and graphic designer joined the situationist movement in 1960 and quickly assumed a position within the Central Committee. De Jong was determine to make "a completely free magazine, based on the most creative of the Situationist ideas", and in 1962 she began the The Situationist Times, a broad representation of a movement that had already become divided into the political and the aesthetic.

The Situationist Times is one of the most visually compelling publications of it's oeuvre, initially printed offset on thick coloured paper, eventually shifting to full colour lithography, with contributions by artists Asger Jorn, Gruppe SPUR, and Pierre Alechinsky. The magazine also featured contributions by architect Aldo van Eyck, astrophysicist Fred Hoyle, mathematician Walter Eitzmann, and composer Peter Schat.

Starting in 1962 there were six issues of The Situationist Times printed before the student uprisings of May '68, leaving a 7th Issue compiled but un-published.
