The present work was used as the frontispiece to Flight's first linocut textbook, Lino-cuts: A Hand-book of Linoleum-cut Colour Printing (1927). This print was impressed on the reverse of the sheet, the colours showing through the fine translucent paper. It is possibly one of the most significant British prints of the early 20th century.
