(London): [ca. 2000s]. 225+ printed and illustrated London prostitute calling cards. Most either 5.5" x 4.5" or 4" x 3" approx. Variously printed, from B&W on colored stock, to four-color photographic. About evenly divided between photocopies, computer printed, and professionally executed examples. A few hand-written examples also present. Some minor duplication. Generally fine. (Item ID: 14446)

A large, fairly comprehensive collection of recent London "tart cards" (aka as "vice cards"), ranging from the fairly tame to the rather more specific. Includes a nice selection of B&D specialists, as well as strong runs of Asian, S&M, and transexual examples. "To anyone interested in printing and graphic design the cards form a microcosm of evolving typographic tastes and techniques [...] For some people the cards are interesting because they are trackers of technology: they show when specialized production equipment becomes available, quite literally, at street level. To others the cards are artistic or typographic curios with a unique linguistic and visual vocabulary. The cards are also sociological and cultural records [...] mirroring [...] changing sexual attitudes and practices" (Archer, TART CARDS, 3-6).
