All of the pieces of work are created by students and graduates from the college as well as professional designers, illustrators and artists including Gerhard Richter, Bill Viola, Julian Opie and Grayson Perry.
All of the artworks are signed on the reverse, leaving the artists' identities a secret until the postcards are purchased.

All of the money raised at the sale will go to the RCA Fine Art Student Award Fund, which supports student artists during their training at the college.
