Eyeball Cards - William Hogan and David Titlow
This book is the first to document this late 70s and early 80s sub culture and presents hundreds of the funniest, strangest and most intriguing Eyeball cards from across the UK. In addition, photographer David Titlow has taken portraits of some of the breakers who owned the cards, and writer William Hogan has written a lively history of how and why these cards came to exist.
The result is a window into an outpouring of creativity that prefigures online identities — social media handles before there was even an internet.
Eyeball Cards is part of the Four Corners Irregulars, a series about modern British visual history. Two books will be published in autumn 2017, with further titles to follow, presenting introductions to important but overlooked areas of creativity.
