Postcard Century by Tom Phillips

Book Description

Each year begins with postcard views of the New York skyline and of Piccadily Circus. Though centred on Britain and the USA, cards come from every corner of the world, from Los Angeles to Beijing, from Antarctica to Alaska. Themes which evolved with the century emerge including: transportation (aviation takes us from the Wright Brothers to the moon); cinema; the role of women; fashion; and holidays. Each postcard is accompanied by a caption which places its message in context.

Books By Author Tom Phillips

Humument by Tom Phillips Humument, Hardback (October 2016)

In 1966 the artist Tom Phillips discovered A Human Document (1892), an obscure Victorian romance by W H Mallock, and set himself the task of altering every page, by painting, collage or cut-up techniques, to create an entirely new version. This edition presents an entirely new and complete version of A Humument.

Pindar's Library by Tom Phillips Pindar's Library, Hardback (December 2015)

Pindar's Library is the first volume to analyse the role played by Pindar's literary, cultic, and scholarly reception in affecting readers' engagement with his poetry, considering the continuities between reading and attending performances, and highlighting elements of readers' experiences which were distinctive to Hellenistic culture.

Tinder Fails by Tom Phillips Tinder Fails, Paperback (December 2014)

What happens when Tinder chats go wrong ... As featured on BuzzFeed

'Menswear' presents photographic postcards of men in all manner of outfits, whether formal, practical or casual, dating from around 1900 up to c. 1949. Most of the subjects are posing for portraits, displaying both their individual style and an interpretation of the fashions of the time.
