Description

In London, sex has been sold through advertising cards posted in phone booths since the early 1980s. Tracing the history of these "tart cards" provides an opportunity to explore a real example of the evolution of vernacular design. This tour through illicit printed solicitation includes interviews with the "service providers, " their marketers "the carders, " the printers, and the local authorities who have sought to control the content of the cards. Extensively illustrated, this book has over 200 provocative examples of the cards as they have evolved over the years.
