About two years ago, I really thought it had happened : for a brief period of time, World Industries seemed like it had partially given up on its post-Rocco lameness, as a whole section on their site started to host scans of the old World catalogs -pure Droorstalgic delicatessen, ’90s boners all over the place.
And then after a few, what, weeks, the catalogs simply disappeared as World got sold again. And has since tried to come up with “provocative” graphics. But.. err.. no dice.
As I got back in touch with Marc McKee, and to celebrate his new book that just came out, I decided to sell my soul to the devil and host said catalogs right here on Memory Screened. For ever and ever and ever and ever. Enjoy! -Seb

Dug up by the good peeps at Fairways and Kickflips, who lifted it up thanks to some kind of archival software called Replay Way Back Machine if I understand well… I think. can’t say I’m very aware of all these internet runnings. Good stuff regardless. It’s here.
