« My grandmother, Anne-Marie Merryman, was born in 1920 in London and died in 1980, the year i was born. Althought i don’t have any memories of meeting her, i inherited two things from her: my first name and a small wooden box. Inside the box were old postcards, wich she had collected throughout her life. I’ve heard that she rarely travelled outside England and didn’t receive these postcards herself but that she collected them for the images and used to look at them for hours whilst seated in her armchair. »
