Unnovations: Tomorrow's Outmoded Artifacts Today

by Charlie Brooker
£7.99   paperback  Faber and Faber (2011)

Unnovations: Tomorrow The truly disgusting yet oddly plausible comic rarity - back in print at last.
 
From Charlie Brooker, celebrated author of TV Go Home, comes a comic spoof of the consumer-product catalogues that once arrived like an unwanted rash from newpapers and magazines.
 
At long last back in print, Unnovations is modelled on those catalogues that were once so welcome as they spilled unwanted from your weekend newspapers in a magfall of bizarre information. This is a timeless celebration of triumphantly useless and inappropriate consumer choices.
 
Illustrated throughout, Unnovations arrives 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 classic vision of a consumer paradise gone very weird indeed.
