For the past four decades, independent postcard press Leeds Postcards has been making oppositional, inspiring images – activism by design. The name itself represents a defiant rejection of the hegemony of London. The images cover a fascinating range of domestic and international politics, causes, and campaigns in a graphically inventive way. Frequently humorous, over 100 cards tell the story of the struggles as well as progressive political triumphs from 1979 to the present, all capturing the cultural zeitgeist of their time. Over the years they have featured work by a huge number of artists and designers, among them Steve Bell, Jacky Fleming, Ray Lowry, and Angela Martin.
