With his debut short story collection, Josh Baines paints a portrait of an American dream in turmoil. Nominally based on the imagined private lives of publicly known personas, he uses Swimming pools, Chris brown's dick, the search for the perfect sandwich, bowling balls, memory, loss, isolation, Katy Perry and bottles of Evian to explore what it means to surrender any sense of self to the overarching machinations of popular culture in the twenty first century.

Watching a Supermodel Sleep on a Plane - by Sam Hutchinson - £24
You’ve found yourself in a digital age of capitalist targeted advertising and the ‘post truth’ phenomenon, where concerns are raised about the legitimacy of the online media, social control and manipulation of the masses. The following sponsored content has been appropriated from trusted sources, delegitimising its truth, and using its own propaganda tactics to shock and indoctrinate a set of belief systems into its audience.

You will believe that the commercial, capitalist forms of visual pollution can be taken, and used for yourself. Steal from those that can afford to be stolen from and claim it as your own. Make the internet great again.
Lizard Point '99 - by Jerry O'Driscoll & Luke Overin - £20

A road trip to the heart of pre-millennial, communal fervour; Lizard Point '99 is a textual and photographic exploration of a young man's last few days of being wild. 

By a chance inter-generational encounter, Jerry O'Driscoll's documentary photography of the Total Solar Eclipse event has been un-earthed and curated by Luke Overin - amounting to a glorious, monochromatic ode to illegal raves, fuggy campervans, and a very English kind of communal identity.

Whilst the photographs in the book recount a specific and special time in O’Driscoll’s life, the supporting interview is forward thinking in its messaging and presents a rallying cry to a fragmentary society tip-toeing cautiously towards a post-pandemic future.
