Four Corners Irregulars, £14
Eyeball Cards: The Art of British CB Radio Culture (William Hogan, Four Corners Irregulars, £14) is the first in a series that will be ‘introductions to important but overlooked areas of creativity’.
The book documents the subculture of the UK Citizens Band radio in the 1970s and early 80s – a two-way radio system with its origin in the US – whose popularity soared among the trucking community during the fuel shortages of the early 1970s.
