Retromania: a new book by Simon Reynolds

In 2011, Simon Reynolds published an amazing book called Retromania in which he argued that modern society is more obsessed with exploring, repurposing, collage-ing and adoring the recent past than any other society before it. In 1909, the Italian Futurists decided everything made more than five minutes ago needed to be insulted as passe and destroyed. While they were nuts in other ways, their founding manifestos should be required reading for present-day creatives.
