Product description

Wyndham Lewis's arts movement Vorticism was baptized on 20 June 1914 in the first issue of BLAST: A Review of the Great English Vortex, the revolutionary magazine. BLAST is now considered one of the 20th century's most glowing examples of modernist expression and typography, both historically indispensable and a milestone in modern thought. To the audience of its time, the first issue of BLAST came as a brutal shock, a quality that has been preserved in this first facsimile edition, which documents in its in original format the raw energy, violent humour, graphic inventiveness and intellectual hard edge of the most compelling and vital magazine project of the modernist movement.

This 2009 large format softback reprint of the manifestos, other writing and artwork by Thames and Hudson is in excellent condition with no markings or evidence of shelf wear. Weight 1.2kg.
