Blast Magazine

Short lived explosive,
Typography to inspire,
Rebel from the past

On a recent trip to the Met I saw this great exhibit on print making in England and Vorticism, the first major art movement started in Britiain in 1914. This magazine, BLAST, was the groups manifesto and is a really inspiring example of powerful typography and forthright rebellion. The founders of the movement wanted to distinguish themselves from their Victorian past and from the futurists as something new and fresh and powerful. In the times we live in, I was really inspired by their impenitent and audacious, take-no-shit tone.

Some samples of Blast were on display at Boston's MFA too. Boston, always on top of things (?)
