Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"After many years of creating individual postcards and small books documenting her work, Microcosm publishing have now published a wonderful new book, featuring ninety of Christy’s pieces of work. . . . If you’re after some thought provoking, inexpensive and inspirational art, then grab a copy now!”  —Haircuts & T-Shirts

“Road’s sharp line work, cinematically narrative drawings, and dedication to the punk scene without succumbing to punk-acceptable sloppiness is extremely impressive. . . . Viva the Road-volution!”  —Roctober

“You can guarantee these will be the most unique postcards your friends will ever receive; a truly unique production and a must have!”  —WonkaVision

“Several other images in this book contain such compressed honesty. Such exposure. Such a lot, on a relatively small canvas. And isn’t this the purpose of postcards? Finally, Road’s work surpasses the cliché, and the postcard embraces its form and function: to fly, to transfer—to communicate.”  —New Pages

“Those who are familiar with Cristy Road's art will know what to expect. . . Lots of portraits and drawings of punk type kids doing what they do.”  —Profane Existence

“With this collection of postcards showcasing the art of Cristy Road, you are sure to find something appropriate to send to every friend in your address book. . . includes plenty of images to make everyone you know smile/think/sigh/dream.”  —Feminist Review
