Mimeograph

OK, let’s do something a little different.

This is what you might call “accidental art.” Some of you won’t call it art at all. But I like it.

Older folks will remember the mimeograph machine. You wrapped a stencil around a big drum, turned the drum, fed paper in one side, ink would be forced through the stencil and a printed sheet of paper would magically come out the other side. Eventually, technology advanced to the point where you didn’t have to hand-crank the thing.

When you were done printing you’d cautiously take the inky stencil off. If you might print more copies later you’d carefully lay the stencil on the original backing sheet.

Various random images would remain on the backing sheet after you took the stencil away. Here’s one that, for some reason, I saved.
