‘A Catalogue of Errors’ gets publication date


A ‘Catalogue of Errors’, described as the first-ever attempt to showcase series of catastrophic failings in areas such as healthcare, the prison service, crowd control, defence and industry, will be published on 15 March, ‘barring accidents’, it was announced today. Publishers boast the lavishly illustrated 96-page catalogue will feature a portfolio of tragedies with ‘an error on every page’.

‘We wanted to be ready in time for the lucrative Christmas market,’ said HarperCollins spokeswoman Jessica Mortimer-Sykkes, but the photographer made a mistake with the proofs, the printers messed up the pagination and then thousands of copies were accidentally destroyed in a warehouse fire. It really was a…a sequence of inopportune events.’ If sales meet their targets, other publications under consideration include a Brochure of Confusion and a Pamphlet of Despair.
