On verso: Illustrated History -1985- This is the fifth in a series of yearly chronicles of contemporary issues, chosen for their impact on the future. Although the articles look like they're right out of the paper, they're not. They have been written by me and typeset to look like "real" newspaper articles. All stories are TRUE, however. Illustrations are also original creations by me incorporating ny unique xerox-photo-collage process. This book is meant to be used. This cover opens out into a 22" x 17" poster which reproduces all the postcard images. Thus, the postcards are to be sent, the poster to be posted. -Mariona Barkus This book is dedicated to the memory of the artist's mother, Bertha Barkus.
