Product description


John Hinde was the first popular colour photographer. His work is finally being recognised as an 'artform' as opposed to just a postcard. He started John Hinde Ltd in 1956 and it is still successful today. For the generations that grew up in the 60s, 70s and 80s Hinde images are part of the fabric of memory. Their very vividness gives them a strange, dreamlike quality that provides mnemonic jolts and fleeting glimpses of lost time. Hinde postcards recast the times and places of the past as Technicolor daydreams. Like scenes from "The Wizard of Oz", where "Dublin" or "Southend-on-Sea" has replaced the "Emerald City", it is the intensity and quality of the colour that matters. Michelle and Sue have lovingly compiled a collection of John Hinde postcards and the messages written on them by holidaymakers between 1960s and 1980s and present them here for the first time as a gorgeous photographic album, a fascinating social record and an important historical document. It is a joyous celebration of the Britain of yesteryear and documents vividly the heyday of the British holiday postcard.
