Broom's first and only manifesto appeared in the magazine's
opening issue in 1921. Below is an excerpt of the manifesto.
"Broom is selecting from the continental literature of the present time
the writings of exceptional quality most adaptable for translation
These will appear side by side with the contemporaneous effort in Great Britain
The painters and sculptors will be represented by the best available reproductions
of their work.
Throughout, the unknown, path-breaking artist will have, when his material merits
it, at least an equal chance with the artist of acknowledged reputation.
In brief, Broom is a sort of clearing house where the artists of the present
time will be brought into closer contact.
The permanence of this project is assured absolutely if supported by the
subscriptions of those sympathetic to it."
