About Comments on a Postcard

In a little-known fit of creative genius during the more psychadelic parts of their early careers, John Lennon and Paul McCartney conceived of an entirely new form of visual entertainment, one which could be transmitted across the world in the blink of an eye and displayed on screens in the homes of millions of readers. Their first attempts were crude, consisting mainly of leftover cut-outs of paisley print from the Sgt Pepper album cover debacle, combined with arty black and white photography taken with the camera held at a 30° angle. To these, they added incisive commentaries lampooning aspects of the British political situation of the time, and offering some insight into the goings on in the drug-induced delirium of two of the greatest artistic minds of the 20th century.

Unfortunately, the artwork was lost in the great Soho fire of 1971, but Ringo bravely faced the flames to emerge from the burning warehouse with the hand-written notes that attempted to explain the deeper meaning behind the lost work, and which now serves as the only remaining legacy of what must surely rate as the greatest and most prescient achievement of multimedia ever.

Now, with the technology of the world finally caught up to the brilliance of the minds who gave it to us, we present the notes and allow your mind to wander the Strawberry Fields of the imagination - the only place where the original lost artwork can be fully appreciated.
