Abstract

Edited by Wyndham Lewis, Blast featured work by Vorticist writers and artists. It ‘Blasted’ or ‘Blessed’ various places, people, and things, sometimes blasting and blessing the same thing. The shocking pink cover is split by the title, which is strikingly positioned diagonally from top left to bottom right and appears in large black caps. Pound referred to the ‘new Futurist, Cubist, Imagiste quarterly’ as the ‘great MAGENTA cover’d opusculus [small or minor work].’
