I’m intrigued

I want this book: “100 Artists’ Manifestos, From the Futurists to the Stuckists“. Can I wait until Christmas and hope someone buys it? I dunno.

I really like the cover. However, the type treatment is a bit too clunky. There should be some more contrast between the type sections. Imagine the last line being Futura Extra Light. That’d be really sharp. Speaking of sharp, that utility knife ready to pierce the canvas is just that. And move the type unit down so it doesn’t interfere with the great photograph.

Cover aside, I’m curious about the range and creativity of the one hundred manifestos.
