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 vernacular 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.
