DS Hold to Light Post Cards

This exhibit showcases a group of postcards sold to the Florida State Univeristy Rhetoric and Composition program by a local Tallahassee resident. The postcards came to us bound by two thick, rotting rubberbands. Taped to the top card and written in red marker was "Hold To Light" and the price of these 22 cards, $125.00.

Is is the cards bound by those two rubberbands that are  displayed in this exhibit. As you will see, however, they are not all true hold to light cards. Our choice to exhibit them as such is an explicit recognition of the hands through which these cards have passed and the role that each set of hands has had in the construction and reconstruction of the artifacts that we are digitally representing here.
