Van Nu en Straks (Of Now and Later or Today and Tomorrow) was a Flemish literary and cultural magazine that was founded in 1893 by August Vermeylen.[1] With a cover designed by Henry van de Velde,[2] this magazine served as a vehicle for a Flemish literary revival and was associated with a heterogeneous group of writers and artists.[3] They were devoted to art for art's sake, without holding dogmatic views on aesthetics or adherence to schools of art.[4] The magazine was published in two series: from 1893–94 and from 1896-1901. It was succeeded in 1903 by the illustrated magazine Vlaanderen,[5] which was co-founded by Herman Teirlinck.
