Tart Cards, London's Illicit Advertising Art, PB Book, Sexual Services Adverts

Tart Cards are the means by which providers of sexual services advertise, traditionally (but illegally) posted in red telephone boxes all over London.

In London, sex has been sold through advertising cards posted in phone boxes since the early 1980s. Tracing the history of these tart cards provides an opportunity to explore the real example of the evolution of design. This tour through illicit printed solicitation includes interviews with the service providers, the marketers, the carders, the printers, and the local authorities who have sought to control the content of the cards.

In their heyday, over 13 million cards were distributed annually - and this book brings together a wide range of cards, which offer any service that you could imagine, and many other services you couldn't imagine!

This book, Tart Cards, offers more than 350 tart cards illustrated in colour, and additional photographs of underground London, and has a glossary of the suggestive and coded language used on the cards. This book is the first in-depth expose of how this unique form of graphic design has developed and continues to evolve.

This is a new paperback book, measuring approx 26cm x 20cm, with around 128 pages, weighing around 500g. It was written by Caroline Archer, and was published in 2003 by Mark Batty.
