Blast by Wyndham Lewis. Conceived by the Anglo-American journalist and writer Wyndham Lewis, Blast was a short-lived journal that ran for just two issues as a manifesto for the avant garde art movement vorticism. As well as Lewis's manifesto, Blast contained poems and prose by Ezra Pound, TS Eliot and Ford Madox Ford, and reproduced the work of key modernist artists, such as David Bomberg, Edward Wadsworth and Jacob Epstein
