Omakirjastuslik ajakiri "Marm"
The edition of the magazine Marm was published in 1968. It was the first samizdat magazine to be compiled outside an institution. For example, the magazines HEES and HEES 2 were partly related to the Young Authors Association, which was related to the Writers' Union. These first publications created the samizdat tradition in Estonia, which continued until the restoration of independence. Kersti Unt describes Marm as follows: ‘Many poems in both publications talk about headlessness, an aimless existence without meaning, and about suffering, hypocritically being related to all of this, even about living in the wrong times.’ The cover of Marm magazine was designed by Kaljo Põllu, who was the head of the Art Department at the University of Tartu, an avant-garde artist, and the founder of the Visarid group of artists. Many leading figures in the almanac movement in Tartu consider this publication to be the most prominent. Marm magazine also published poems by the resistance fighter Jaan Isotamm (Johnny B. Isotamm).
