My favourite image in this┬áissue of Spy┬áis the Mhairi Macaroon illustration. It’s so seedy and cheesy, and so beautifully done. Redolent of some war-time cabaret, it was probably created mostly with John’s trusty Berol RollerBall pen. He could make that little bit of shitty plastic sing!

Another of John Watson’s fab little photocopied magazines: this is from 1986.
