{ feuilleton }


• • • Being a journal by artist and designer John Coulthart, cataloguing interests, obsessions and passing enthusiasms.




Pulps and octopuses! Octopuses and pulps! Not sure how this has evaded my attention until now but better late than never, especially when the contents are this er, pulpy. Francesca Myman, self-proclaimed Mistress of the Tentacled Oblivion (there’s a title to conjure with), has accumulated a stunning collection of octopoidal pulp madness. More goggle-eyed cephalopods than you can wave a blunt harpoon at. Hunks and babes alike, all must submit to the suckered demands of the tentacled menace!

    Wow – fabulous octo graphics. Of course, the octo most likely to kill you would fit in the palm of your hand – but of course that wouldn’t make for much of a cover image.

    Ah yes, the blue-ringed fiend. William Burroughs was fascinated by them and had them used as weapons in The Western Lands.
