This study explores the subversive stance taken by the Afrikaans little magazine Stet (19821991) against the then current ideologies of Afrikaansness, apartheid, and censorship in South Africa during the 1980s. A narrative exploration of the context and circumstances from which the publication emerged, provides a base from which the visualisation of the subversive stance on the covers of Stet is semiotically analysed. The oppositional and alternative nature of the covers of Stet is discussed from within the Barthesian paradigm of myth construction and the discipline of social semiotics.
