The Profumo Affair

The Daily Sleaze

With the aim of creating a niche guide of Britain or British culture this project explores British political history - focusing on the headline making scandals of the past 100 years. The project’s title ‘The Daily Sleaze’ is inspired by the British Red Top press and is formatted as a tabloid, while taking visual inspiration from the DIY fanzines of the 1970’s and 1980’s.
