The Face, nº 43, November 1983

“Neville Brody's layouts for the issue included jarring photographic manipulation and the use of folkloric motifs (...) 'I decided to subvert the European success in all forms of art by using ancient Mexican symbolism,' he later explained. 'This undermining factor was to pinpoint Europe's colonial plunder, and how easily it had become a tradition. I don't think many people, or even The Face, realized this side of the design.”
