In America, this is just done on craigslist.

Have you ever heard of tart cards?  I hadn’t, until very recently.  Tart cards are business cards placed in phone booths to advertise the services of prostitutes.  They are most common in London but can be found elsewhere in the United Kingdom.  They are typically placed in phone booths by professional “carders”, who tour the phone booths, replacing cards which have been removed by the telephone companies’ cleaners.

Wallpaper (via Transientink) decided that they needed to class this process up, so they asked some well known designers to make their own tart cards using only typeface.  And given my love of punctuation, I couldn’t not post it.  Jump to see the best ones, and thank Neary for the heads up, as usual.
