Praskačka, a small humorous magazine of the students of the grammar school in Jindřichův Hradec was not a classical periodical. It was created in 1864 in the form of small handwritten notebooks that circulated among the students. This paper presents four extant copies, which are part of the collection ‘Cultural and Historical Archives’, kept in the State District Archives of Jindřichův Hradec. This satirical magazine encompasses various literary genres such as short stories, poems, elegies, an opera libretto, fictitious telegrams, news from the region as well as advertisements. They mainly include stories from the students’ daily life, love troubles, drinking adventures, but also allusions to political events. All issues were lavishly illustrated.
