Swiss-Miss recently introduced me to Depero Futurista, or "The Bolted Book", a 1927 work by the Italian Futurist Fortunato Depero. The book, which has long been unavailable, is described as "[a collection of] bold typographic experimentation, daring layouts, and featuring work in nearly every artistic and design medium". With the help of this Kickstarter, Designers & Books, the Center for Italian Modern Art in New York, and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto, Italy, the Bolted Book is going to be re-printed. The groups are collaborating on a new facsimile edition that will be the first exact copy of Depero Futurista produced since its original publication 90 years ago.
