Synopsis

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY MARK HADDONIn Postcard From The Past, Tom Jackson has gathered a collection of the funniest, weirdest and most moving real messages from the backs of old postcards.`Sublimely funny' Jason Hazeley, author of the Ladybird Books for Grown Ups`My favourite Twitter account is now my favourite book. Irresistible!' Jill Mansell`This book is an absolute treat' Holly Walsh`Transfixing, beguiling, warmly haunting. These are the ghosts of a childhood' Robin Ince`A hilarious and occasionally disturbing look at how the British remain resolutely small-minded wherever they go' Charlie Higson`Six by four inch portions of pure heaven' Rachel Johnson`Somehow both poignant and deeply creepy' Samira Ahmed`One of Twitter's most nourishing concepts - each one arriving like a bonsai Alan Bennett play' Danny Baker`Beautiful. Inspiring. Educational. Hilarious' Emma Freud`One of the saddest and funniest picture books you're ever likely to read' Owen Hatherley, author of The Ministry of Nostalgia`Hilarious, haunting, silly, poetic and profound' Danny Wallace`A book of rare and genuine beauty' James O'Brien, LBC
