Postcard from the past is a collection of the funniest, weirdest and most moving real messages from the backs of old postcards, expertly sorted and presented to a digital audience by its creator Tom Jackson. Initially a Twitter account and now a beautiful new book, his faded ink and smudged postmarks have been enjoyed by tens of thousands of fans. Tom’s project is a rolling anthology of micro-stories, mishaps, one-liners and cries for help, each providing a tantalising glimpse into a window to the past. Tom joins us to share the best of his collection.
