PUFF IN HIS PRIME. SEPTEMBER 1999.

THIS IS A GOLD MINE OF INSPIRATION, IT ACTUALLY MADE MY HEART RACE TO FLIP THROUGH THESE PAGES. NO BETTER WAY TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF YOUR WORK THAN TO IMPROVE YOUR CREATIVE CONSUMPTION. AND ALSO IT’S JUST COOL AS FUCK TO HAVE THIS ON YOUR TABLE???

THE FACE IS THE ICONIC MAG YOU’VE BEEN SLEEPING ON. AND FOR SHAME!

ART DIRECTED BY NEVILLE BRODY, THIS MAG EMERGED AT THE SAME TIME AS I-D, DURING A TIDAL WAVE OF POST MODERNISM AND PUNK GOODNESS. COMPLETELY CHANGING THE GAME, BRODY ABANDONED CONVENTIONAL GRID-BASED LAYOUTS, EXPLORING NEW TEXTURES AND DECORATIVE MOTIFS, AS WELL AS COMBINING ALL TYPES OF SURFACE MARKS AND VARIETIES OF TYPE AND LETTER FORMS.

BRODY DREW INSPIRATION FROM THE VITALITY AND CRUDENESS OF PUNK, AS WELL AS THE EXPERIMENTATION OF DADA, RUSSIAN CONSTRUCTIVISM, THE BAUHAUS, DE STIJL, AND OTHER AVANT GARDE TRENDS OF INTERWAR MODERNISM. HIS WORK WITH THIS MAGAZINE WAS EXTREMELY INFLUENTIAL AND ITS STYLE WAS IMITATED FOR DECADES.

AND NOW ITS OUR TURN!

IN THIS ISSUE: COUTURE EDITORIALS ON SALT OF THE EARTH CIS MACHO MEN @ WORK, ADVERTISING AT ITS PEAK, PUFF LOOKING HOT IN AN EDITORIAL APTLY TITLED “GODSPEED YOU BLACK EMPEROR” (IS BLACK EMPEROR YOUR NEW BAND NAME?), FASHION, INTERVIEWS WITH BANDS YOU DON’T KNOW, BANDS YOU FORGOT, AND BANDS YOU NEED TO REMEMBER, + MORE INCREDIBLE SHIT THAT YOU HAVE TO SEE TO IMAGINE.
