Those wanting to leave a lasting impression wherever they go are recommended the messenger. Useable for anything up to a banal visiting card, it leaves lasting traces or lays wrong tracks just as its mentor or wearer wishes. Think of a lyricist with pointed features and an eloquent mind, yet as so often is the case, without a publisher or means to achieve a wider impact. We call out to all free and cross-thinkers to sow the seeds of their thoughts. Carry literature into the city, to squares and streets where the words will bear fruit in others’ minds.
