View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Cold War Steve has been acclaimed as the Brexit Bruegel and a modern-day Hogarth or Gillray. His Twitter feed, McFadden’s Cold War, has become a cult phenomenon, with over 120,000 followers (and counting). This book contains the prime cuts of his elaborate, satirical photo collages from his Twitter feed, with further exclusive, unseen new work.

Begun as a personal reprieve from an often-bleak political climate, Cold War Steve (Christopher Spencer in real life) started collaging images of longstanding Eastender Steve McFadden (aka Phil Mitchell) into Cold War-era scenarios, using a 3 smartphone app while commuting. As ‘Brexit Britain’ begins to take shape his output has taken an increasingly surreal, satirical turn – in what some are calling ‘furious absurdism’ – creating dystopian, absurdly funny Brexit-era landscapes populated with a rotating cast of political, cultural or otherwise newsworthy (or not) figures, and ever-present Fray Bentos pies. A pitch-perfect marriage of Internet meme culture and the political lampoon, Cold War Steve satirizes our increasingly incongruous-seeming popularpolitical culture with quintessentially British humour.

In a time when the UK’s exit from the EU looms large, Cold War Steve offers us a satirical escape from a world that seems to have slipped its moorings from reality.

Review:

'Apocalyptic but side-splitting' - Financial Times 'One of the funniest accounts on Twitter' - Kathy Burke 'No one has caught the mood of Brexit Britain as acutely as Cold War Steve' - The Art Newspaper 'A modern Hogarth or Gillray ... He's newsy and angry. It's what Brits do best. Don't engage with these people's arguments because they don't have any. Just flay them alive with humour, sarcasm and art' - Jon Savage 'Online therapy for those beaten down by political despair' - Guardian 'Exemplifies an angry new movement ... the new furious absurdism' - The Economist
