Preamble to the Constitution - in license plates


Created by conceptual artist Mike Wilkins in 1987. He
"celebrated the bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution by requesting personalized license plates from all fifty states to form its preamble.”
Here is the Preamble in a more conventional form:
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Found at Ordinary Finds.
