The Toynbee tiles are messages of unknown origin with feature political statements.


These baffling, handmade tiles and plaques have been cropping up around the US and South America since the 1980s, and no one knows who is making them, or why. They’re the size of a car licence plate, and usually say something like “In movie 2001 resurrect dead on planet Jupiter”, a reference to the 1970s Stanley Kubrick/Arthur C. Clarke film, although a few feature political statements too.
