Here's issue no.15 'Here Comes Another One' being printed.
For a change I printed the cover using a 30yr old serigraphie  (French children's mini screen print toy). It prints a bit erratically (or maybe that was me) using cut out paper stencils.

Here's how they came out, I printed yellow on brown wrapping paper, after laser printing the black first.

So, why the long face? Have you been eating something suspicious... Damp Flat Products obviously deny everything and unlike Tesco - we're NOT SORRY. BUT, cheer-up!
