Object description:
The reason why wedding cards with anti-communist slogans appeared was because in 1952 the Taiwan Provincial Security Command – the supreme military organization in Taiwan Province at the time – stipulated the “Provisional Regulation for Adding Anti-Communist and Anti-Russia Slogans on Printed Materials” for wedding invitations, flyers, homework books, instruction manuals, admission tickets, matchboxes, record labels and cigarette packs. Therefore, even wedding cards were printed with slogans like “Destroy Zhu and Mao, Expel Russian Bandits”, as well as on other everyday objects.
