Savage Messiah is a London zine by Laura Oldfield Ford, each issue featuring her drawings and psychogeographical reflections on a city of squats, punk, free parties and urban dereliction.

John Wild presents: Why be you?

What better present to give at Christmas that a new designer Identity? Its the perfect gift for one of your foreign friends or an oversees relative.

The ‘Why Be You’ range offers fingerprint casts made in fine silver and package in an exquisite luxury velvet lined chrome case. Each silver fingerprint cast comes with instructions which makes use of the research carried out by the cryptographer Tsutomu Matsumoto to demonstrate how fingerprint scanners can be fooled using gelatine fingerprints. Our casts are procured totally legally, from terminally ill patients, and by the time of purchase free for you to use for your own Identity needs.
