Not so anonymous now, but it was at the time...
By the end of 2016 I was fed up of all the bitter arguments about Brexit, like many people I imagine, and wanted to do something positive. I came across this Howard Zinn quote by chance and decided to have 5,000 of these postcards made. I stuffed them into the letterboxes of houses and businesses all over St Leonards and Hastings with the help of my friend Dana Brass at 2am one stormy night in November. She also dropped loads around London and on the train on her travels. Another friend loaned me a copy of his book 'A People's History Of The United States' and I got inspired!
I hoped people would pass them on, reappropriate, or just bin them if they wanted. My intention was for them to go on a journey I could never possibly imagine, control or predetermine. I like the idea that someone might come across one blowing around at the local tip or folded up under a table leg to stop it wobbling. Hope is often found in the strangest of places.
