This print began as a badge (with the words 'Souvenir Picture Edition') on the masthead of the 11 March 1961 edition of the Reading Evening News. This was then put through a series of printing and remixing processes until it became the nearly-abstract print you see here. It's an ideal print or gift idea for anyone who loves reading, writing, newspapers or the beauty of the printed word.
