As announced in their advert printed in this brochure the merchandising produced by South Atlantic Souvenirs & Trouble relates partly to three commodities - sugar, tobacco and tea - and their concern about the inequallity of global community trading, and partly to the imperial mentality and the legacy of racism. Verbal Images is a collaboration of different artforms that “looks at the effect that the British Empire has had on the people of Africa and Asia through slavery colonialism and neo-colonialism.”
