Commissioned by dOCUMENTA (13) and the Goethe-Institut, Kabul and produced on the occasion of the exhibition at Queen's Palace, Bagh-e Babur in Kabul, Afghanistan, June 20 - July 19, 2012, the artist book c/o Jolyon (2012) consists of 50 out of 100 found vintage postcards with pre-war views of Kassel, painted over with gouache by the artist with contemporary views of the same sites. They were mailed to the former CEO of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture in Kabul, Jolyon Leslie who shares his first name with Tacita Dean's father and who due to her grandfather's friendship with writer John Galsworthy, was given it as a middle name after the character in The Forsyte Saga and is believed to have been the first non-fictional person with that name.
