Summary

An artist's book of handset type and manipulated photocopies. The colour cover illustration suggests a 1950s pulp science fiction title, with additional text: "Sixteen great stories - all complete. See back cover. World without uvulas. Madness in mouth and foot by Professors Spurrier and McBurnie. 16 complete sinuous stories. The suicide type by Dr Kinlyside."
