    Fascists burning porn? That funny Festival of Light!

  2. fred Says:

    It’s obvious. Rudolf Hess flew to Scotland in WWII to pick up some porn.

  3. A. R.Yngve Says:

    What is this, a fascist fashion magazine…??

    “This Spring, get some bounce in your goose-step with gorgeous designer jackboots.”

  4. Randall Frost Says:

    The ultimate fascist achievement: the self-burning book.

  5. Francis Boyle Says:

    I’ll have to give it this – this cover’s crappiness is at least a decade ahead of its time.

  6. Tat Wood Says:

    Original title ‘Seventy-Two Virgins’ by Boris Johnson.

  7. JuanPaul Says:

    It looks like they’re only burning soft core porn, so no worries.

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I thought that blue book on its side was titled Orgies for Dummies but maybe it’s Orgies to Go which would make it relevant to current social distancing protocols.

    If he’d had punk rockers on it, it would have been predictive of the Thatcher years. But I suppose oddly-dressed grubby men bring in fewer punters than garter belts and breasts.

    @Randall Frost: indeed. Fascist white boys burned down two revered bookstores in Minneapolis, then it was, of course, blamed on black people.

    @ARY: It might be a mail-order catalogue.

    @JP: Heh. And this book didn’t predict the internet.

  10. Tat Wood Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: punk was so over by the time Thatch got in. There were three people with Mohicans posng for photos with tourists who milled aroundf the King’s Road but by 1979 it was all about the Mod Revival, synths and Blitz Kids, plus what would five years later be called ‘Goth’.

    This is more Clockwork Orange-y. Some idiot decided that spray-guns were the future of commercial art, hence Adrian Chesterman and Alan Aldridge.

    Taylor Swift’s new album collage.

  12. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Tat Wood: interesting. Given their “rage against the machine” attitude, it amuses me that the Punks punked out (heh) before Thatcher came in and gave people something to really complain about. And I think you’re spot on about the aesthetic. The future is almost always pictured in terms of the present: remember Star Trek’s brave new 1966 mini-skirted future?

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tat: Frankly, it’s hard to tell what styles this is “predicting”. Cleavage and lingerie could be any time in living memory.

    Although I don’t know how the fascist takeover managed to rearrange the nipples of the girl at the top. Dastardly indeed!
