To return to the recent thread on Book Art History, let's look at the
work of Marinetti and the Futurists from 1902 to 1945. This movement
broke the book arts (and all the other arts) wide open. From our point
of view, the influence on work being done during the last hundred
years has been immeasurable, in typography, concrete poetry, graphic
design, illustration, and conceptual art.

There is a great new illustrated online catalog at
http://www.arengario.it/mostre/futurism/0futuidx.htm

Look at the manifestos, the exhibition catalogs and the books. It's
inspirational.

Here's a quote from Marinetti's "A bas le Tango et Parsifal!":

Compte-gouttes de l’amour. Miniature des
angoisses sexuelles. Sucre tors et filé du désir.
Luxure en plein air. Delirium tremens. Mains et
pieds d’alcoolisés. Coït mimé pour
cinématographe. Valse masturbée. Pouah!. Fi des
diplomates de peau! Vive la sauvagerie d’une
possession brusque et la furie d’une danse
musculaire exaltante et fortifiante.
