As seen on TV

Fame at last…
A BBC documentary last night about satirical map making, dedicated a large portion of the program to a certain “Octopus Map” by Fred W Rose.
We see the skilled art of the printers as they ink the plates and wind the presses.
But what we don’t see is the equally skilled staff at Hexio scanning and enhancing the faded original and manually painting the spot colours in Photoshop so that we can create the high definition litho film positives to supply them to Artichoke for their plates.
