THE WORLD'S WORST FOOD

A naked imitation of the Gallery of Regrettable Food at James Lileks' Institute of Official Cheer

The sinister disembodied floating head of Gracie Fields says: "IT'S CHAMPION!"

victims and counting!

 

I'm fortunate enough to have an antique shop at the end of my street that does a nice line in ephemera of various kinds. A couple of months back, they turned up a plastic bag full of recipe leaflets from the late 1950s and early 1960s, on which I duly wasted all of three quid. As with the pamphlets immortalised at the Gallery of Regrettable Food, almost all the leaflets were produced in association with some manufacturer or other - Atora Suet, Smith's Crisps, Chivers Jams, Sainsbury's. I'll save the sarcasm for the pages themselves, so click on!

If you have any similar booklets, I'd love to add them to the site. E-mail me with details at joe@spamtrap.flaneur.org.uk, taking out the word "spamtrap" before sending scans or anything, please. Enjoy.
