Product description

Tomorrow's outmoded artefacts today. From the makers of "TV Go Home" comes a comic spoof of the consumer-product catalogues that arrive like an unwanted rash from newpapers and magazines. Modelled on those catalogues that are so welcome as they spill unwanted from your weekend newspapers in a magfall of bizarre information, this is a celebration of triumphantly useless and inappropriate consumer choices. Illustrated throughout in the shape and style of catalogues that offer you the chance to buy machines that stamp your initials onto golf balls or allow you to warm you slippers electronically before putting them on. An array of toys, gadgets, handy-helps and objects the like of which haven't been seen since Inquisitional torture went out of fashion: it's a modern vision of a consumer paradise gone very weird indeed.
