In the early 1990s, long before the Internet became an integral part of life, a handful of pioneering magazines took it upon themselves to imagine it into existence. Using fiction, interviews, speculative theory and experimental graphic design, these periodicals helped create a lexicon and iconography every bit as powerful as the architecture of the World Wide Web.

Overview

In the early 1990s, long before the Internet became an integral part of life, a handful of pioneering magazines took it upon themselves to imagine it into existence. Using fiction, interviews, speculative theory and experimental graphic design, these periodicals helped create a lexicon and iconography every bit as powerful as the architecture of the World Wide Web. London-based Mute occupied a central position among these pioneering publications, offering a platform to authors and artists ranging from Bruce Sterling to Geert Lovink, Keith Tyson and VNS Matrix. As new technologies forced a collapse of disciplinary boundaries and the intermingling of communities, Mute featured many of the artists, writers and photographers that came to epitomize London's status as a creative capital in the 1990s. This book presents a full overview of the magazine over that decade, showing its entire output from logos to covers to spreads.
