“Blurb was a Dutch literary magazine published irregularly in 1950-1951 and edited by Simon Vinkenoog.
In April 1950 Vinkenoog took the initiative to establish the magazine at the age of 21. Until 1951 eight issues appeared, stencilled and in an edition of 250 copies at most.
Until issue 4 the magazine was a one-man publication. Then other experimental writers joined Vinkenoog, including Hans Andreus, Armando, Remco Campert, Hugo Claus, Lucebert and POaul Rodenko. Work by Willem Frederik Hermans, Jan Hanlo and Hans Lodeizen was also published in the magazine.
Vinkenoog ended the last issue with the words: “Dit is nummer 8 van Blurb geweest. Laten we het mooi houden, er vooral geen literatuur van maken. De eerste Juni 1951.”
In 1962 stelde Vinkenoog voor Literaire Uitgeverij De Beuk nummer 9 samen, bestaande uit een bloemlezing uit alle acht nummers. Dit allerlaatste nummer verscheen in facsimile." (Source: Wikipedia).

The term blurb is an English term for a blurb text.
