The title of one of the cards can be understood as a creator statement about the object: "Men call pubic hair pornography but / monsters are innofensive".

Originally these postcards were presented in a clear plastic box but today they are presented in a dark brown envelope. 3 postcards have the name of one of the three artists; Roland Topor, Daniel Spoerri and Robert Filliou. The other cards are edited images such as a fleetingly drawn portrait into which holes were made where the eyes should be. Fingers were inserted through these and this action was captured and photographed. Another postcard shows drawings over photographic images. The drawings are by Topor, the manipulations of the photographic images by Filliou and Spoerri. Vera Spoerri photographed the final result.
