This zine was inspired by living in Thamesmead, South East London, in the run up to the Coronation. Whilst Thamesmead was designed to be a modernist utopia, Poundbury was designed according to the traditionalist principles of Prince Charles. As a younger man, he was super-critical of places like Thamesmead - invented in the 1960s - calling post-war housing “a victory of ideology and arrogance over humanity and common sense”. So, the artists travelled to Poundbury - the place he invented in the 1990s - to check out his alternative. Once they’d recovered, they began drawing, writing and designing to produce this zine. It compares the two places, while touching on nostalgia, taste, inequity and hate. IT’S A CORONATION SPECIAL!
