Visual Description : In the lower centre of the page lurks what we at the Maltwood workstation can only determine to be a black werewolf. This is perhaps ironic because the text above and to the left of this creature reads: LANGUAGES WERE BORN, HAVE LIVED AND DIED, BUT PICTORAL ILLUSTRATIONS HAVE EVER BEEN THE SHORTEST DISTANCE AND THE MOST DIRECT ROUTE BETWEEN MINDS. THEIR LANGUAGE IS UNIVERSAL. THEY NEED NO INTERPRETER. MANY ARE THE WAYS THAT HAVE BEEN DEVISED FOR REPRODUCING PICTORAL ILLUSTRATIONS, BUT LIITHOGRAPHY HAS SURPASSED ALL OTHERS AND DEMONSTRATED ITSELF THE MOST PRACTICAL, EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE. the Bulman seal appears this time in the top right of the page, but the company information remains at the bottom.
