Graphotsim Nov/Dec 2000

IMG_3056
Having dug through the archives a couple of weeks back I came across this copy of Graphotism from 2000.

For those that remember pre-large book issues, Graphotism's monthly publication was a must cop. Featuring great images from across Europe and pieces and interviews with those involved in the culture as a whole. This issue comprised of a Londonnewyorkpunkrockhiphop feature, interviews with Afria Islam, DonLetts, Dennis Morris and Anita Sarko. An interview with James Lavelle pre-drop of the Futura2000 book on Mo' Wax and a piece on the Sprite Urban Games in Clapham (remember that!?). Mo' Wax were pretty legendary on the design front. Futura's characters for Unkle are as memorable as the music and Ben Dury has gone on to do some pretty decent work for Dizzee Rascal in recent years, culminating in the Dirtee Stank Air Max 90 in 09.

The Futura obsessives will be pretty jealous of Bothan Spynet's collection.

Used to grab these down @ Graphotism before all the fags came on the scene.

The DDS issue was the best by far, also that one with Known was a good un.
