Edition Notes: Rover design this print as a model (to be printed) to choose colours for "Tokyo Crossraods". I gave him the lino and while I was gone he asked someone for oil pastels. He was bored waiting for the proofing of his plates. When I came back he had coloured it in, and gave it to me a s a present, signing the back. Needless to say I never editioned this one!"
