Future Fantasteek! No.7

Softback Zine printed in colour on cream and peach tinted papers, saddle-stitched.
A5 size containing 16 printed pages. Bright yellow card cover with 2 rhinestones.
Issue Seven: Brighton 2009, edition size of fifty.

The 'Damp Research Facilities' have been terribly busy shredding their expenses claims for the last ten years. I mean who’d have thought the public would have gotten knocky about perfectly okay claims for moat-cleaning and second homes, when they’ve all busy thieving handfuls of biros from work. So what if a few deserving Damp Staff want a new telly? Who wouldn’t begrudge them some small comforts? What else? Well Damp Research has proved conclusively that money is vital for happiness and in the spirit of you can never be too happy...keep fiddling the claim forms.

Future Fantasteek! No.8

Softback Zine printed in colour on cream, white and lime tinted papers, saddle-stitched.
A5 size containing 16 printed pages. Red and white pearl card cover with small holographic sticker.
Issue Eight: Brighton 2010, edition size of fifty.

In spite of being out-of-ideas the 'Damp Research Facilities' have filled sketchbooks with pointless drawings for your delectation. As usual the Damp Staff have been out and about eavesdropping on tedious mobile phone conversations, designing products for a better future and trying to get away with passing this off as Art - I mean...honestly! TIME FOR ACTION: What we REALLY need now are some more middle-managers to form a committee, to draw up an agenda, to propose a strategic plan that addresses concerns both real and implied of whoever it was who started this whole thing in the first place.
Pass the biscuits please...

Issue one: Brighton 2006, edition size of fifty.

This Zine is full of eveything that’s wrong with modern living, modern people and going to work. It’s a mixture of hand-drawn typographic slogans and advice with curious advertisements thrown in for good measure. Buy an Evil-Pet or a machine for generating Stupid Ideas. The Damp Flat Research Facilities have wasted no time in bringing you the most up to date advice along with plausible excuses that can be profered for any event. Things you need and things you don’t - if you can’t tell ‘em apart... YOU NEED THIS ZINE
