The upper postcard features a still from my favourite film ‘Bladerunner’. The reverse is a quote from Orwell’s 1984 which seems really prescient now given that all our information is now being scrutinized by GCHQ. We seem powerless – or have given away our right to privacy because we just don’t care enough to be outraged.
I drew the typewriter in the lower image – I used to have a typewriter like this ages ago and love the technology. I read that in the light of all conversations and e mails being intercepted, that the Germans were thinking of going back to using typewriters. The words….. We really do need a free press but its hard with the likes of the Daily Mail- just making stuff up!
