The magazine is the work of the Manchester Modernist Society, which organises events around the north of England, focusing on its 20th century art, design and architecture. The magazine follows a similar path, with general articles covering Oscar Niemeyer's Brazil, Esperanto, logos past and original mods, to more specific regional pieces on Liverpool, Manchester and Blackburn's heritage, to name just a few things.
With a foreword by Jonathan Meades, the magazine launches in late June with a launch party in Manchester. But you can pre-order or subscribe now at the website.
