Prang's Easter cards

Description

Proofs like this one for an 1886 Easter card advertisement were made for each print. The chromist marked each side with a cross so that the color plates line up. A hole in the upper right corner also allows the chromist to place the sheet of paper in the same spot for each run through the press. The color scale at bottom left shows the nine colors needed to create this image.
