Every organisation that was built up on passion and a love of what they do, finds themselves more and more pro-active in their work each year. Montana Cans is no exception as we strive to make the best cans on earth. But that is no excuse to reflect on all the extra curriculum activities like collaborations, festival, project and artist support that happen through the year as well. After all this helped create history. The Montana Cans LOOKBOOK gives an outlet to remember, reflect and reward those who deserve a little extra attention with some extra glow of the spotlight. With great pleasure, we announce the online release of the Montana Cans LOOKBOOK 2019, looking back at some of the highlights of 2019. This edition delves into many projects such as the Montana Cans limited edition cans that featured Mina & Bruce (plus interview), Felipe Pantone, Most and Flying Förtress. We reminisce on the cool collabo's we were involved in with Happy Socks, Good Guy Boris and Reebok Sneakers. We get re-inspired by feature articles on artists IMAGINE, THE LONDON POLICE, FRAU ISA, 1010 and 1UP CREW. We take a look at some of the urban art festivals that raised the bar even higher like METROPOLINK, POW!WOW ROTTERDAM and the THE BERLIN MURAL FESTIVAL. With eyes wide open we scratch under the surface of some alternative disciplines within graffiti culture. The spotlight gets turned on ABSTRACT LETTERING, GRAFFITI ON FREIGHTS and CALLIGRAFFITI. We share some knowledge on the new products like the Montana BLACK INFRA colors and Montana BOLD marker line, which took the industry by storm. Just as the special moment that was the grand opening of the MONTANA STORE VIENNA with our industry partners CONCRETE, did. All this and more over 160 enthralling full color pages.

Since 1810 the Bavarian

Since 1810 the Bavarian capital of Munich has celebrated this internationally renowned peoples fest. The festival, which runs from mid to late September until the first weekend in October, was originally created to celebrate the marriage of the then Crown Prince Ludwig with the Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. Today, OKTOBERFEST celebrates all things beer, festivities, the colors light blue & white and of course, Sausage dogs (Dachshund). Thats right, Sausage dogs. The Dachshund is as Bavarian as OKTOBERFEST itself. The stubborn little four legged critter shares a lot of traits and characteristics with the Bavarian folk themselves. Characteristics like loyalty, inquisitiveness, assertiveness and determination. And did I mention they were stubborn? In the creation of the BLACKBRÄU Limited Edition Bavarian Blue, we needed to call on someone special. Someone that knew how to connect the dots on all these iconic traditions and put them into one design that paid homage to this cultural phenomenom. There was no better artist to create such an artwork then FLYING FÖRTRESS. Born and raised in Munich and now living in the northern city of Hamburg, Germany, FÖRTRESS is no stranger to the joys of drinking beer and the beauty of the legendary Bavarian blue skies! With Beer & Bavaria in his blood, the integration of the Dachshund in the limited edition BLACKBRÄU Bavarian Blue design was a logical step for this Oktoberfest insider. In the world graffiti community, FÖRTRESS is maybe as famous as Oktoberfest itself. As an integral member of the JBCB crew and purveyor of all things cool, FÖRTRESS’s work extends far into illustration, design, apparel and collectible vinyl toy design. 50
