THE POST CARD IS ALWAYS INNOCENT continues Simon Cutts's ongoing quasi-theoretical postcard project, manifestations of which have been released from time to time by David Bellingham in Glasgow in his WAX366 series. The project began with NO FREE READING in the mid nineties, and extends since then to the THE WORLD HAS BEEN EMPTY SINCE THE POSTCARD, via THE POSTCARD IS A PUBLIC WORK OF ART. This serial project is one aspect of Cutts's engagement with the tradition of Stéphane Mallarmé’s "Loisirs de la Poste." He has written about the POLEMICAL POSTCARDS in Some Forms of Availability (Granary/RGAP, 2007).

500 postcards, printed letterpress at UDP, numbered and signed by the author.

This post card is number "I" in the Ugly Duckling Poste series.
