The Smiths – Morrissey – Handwritten Postcard and Envelope to Jon Savage
A handwritten Smiths promotional postcard and hand addressed envelope sent by Smiths front man Morrissey to noted UK Journalist Jon Savage, in April 1987, around the release of the Smiths single "Sheila Take A Bow" (which this card promotes.) Savage was a well known journalist on the punk scene, writing for Sounds and then Melody Maker, and the Face (before turning his attention to books; he is the author of the acclaimed "England's Dreaming: Sex Pistols and Punk Rock," amongst others.) Morrissey was a fan of Savage, and Savage an was an early and vocal supporter of the Smiths. The card, with an Andy Warhol image on the front, was sent inside an envelope postmarked April 1987 (the day is indistinct) in London, England. Morrissey writes ""Melody Maker" (so long ago now) was quietly entertaining. But you know this. I await the book–ANY book ! A Fan, "The Mozzer," (I do believe.)" Mozzer is of course Morrissey's nickname. A rare card with an excellent association. Guaranteed authentic with no time limit.
