This A-Z Manchester page, from the early 1960s, was constructed using paper copies of drawing originals which were glued and patched together on a carrier sheet. With the page number, index references and continuation arrows stuck on, pages were then photographically reduced to the printing scale. What is very visible here is that the revision work for subsequent editions (up to 1972) was carried out on the actual page, rather than returning to the original drawing. Existing detail has been covered with white paint which formed the base for new ink work. The title page has been assembled with the contents section bromide paper text cut out and positioned within the overall artwork.
