Irreverent, coded and rich: Eyeball Cards

How we love Eyeball Cards, Four Corners Books’ perfectly out-of-left-field new collection of social / business cards made by users of British CB Radio in the “golden age” of the 1970s and early 80s. “Irreverent, coded and rich with playful imagery, the phrases of CB radio make up a pidgin language all of its own,” William Hogan writes. “When in full flow, it can include a heady mix of amateur radio’s Q code and elements of the police 10 code, but usually it’s a scattergun of accepted half-sense and carriageway wisdom.” Thus, “bubble trouble” means “tire problem.” “Pregnant rollerskate” equals “VW Beetle.” And “88s” stands for “kisses.”
