Should you happen upon this flyposted message, you’ll be struck by its beguiling duality: How offensive – yet how beautiful! Especially with that gold-foilblocked censor strip. Let’s face it, it’s not everyday you see a flyposted poster (flyposter?? Or is the flyposter the one doing the posting of the posters???) with gold foilblocking, more’s the pity. But wait, we’ve also been getting reports of sightings of more suspiciously well-produced posters popping up around London – ones with varnishes, scratch-off type and even heat-sensitive ink…
