Visiting Scarfolk, The Most Spectacular Dystopia Of The 1970s

Though adults tend to look back on youth as a time of innocence, childhood is actually terrifying. Designer and screenwriter Richard Littler turned his nightmarish memories of life in suburban England into a hilarious blog and book about the fictional town of Scarfolk - a paranoid, totalitarian '70s community, where even babies are not to be trusted.

Littler created pamphlets, posters, book covers, album art, audio clips, and television shorts, which all play on the era's aesthetic style and culture of fear. Check out the full story at Collectors Weekly.

I wonder if they ever caught the grizzly bear responsible for the serial killings.
