"too hot to hoot", colored in and mirrored

"too hot to hoot", colored in and mirrored
I wanted to print something that was not only a palindrome, "too hot to hoot" is one, obviously, but one that would only use letters that are also mirror symmetric, so that the print can be viewed also from the backside.
This image shows a digitally coloured scan of the print on the left side, and the mirror image (like it would be seen from the backside) on the right.

There is another image in my photostream where I mirrored it, and you can see how the text would look on a shine through backside.

The size of the printing lino plate I starte with was A5, obviously the final print is a little more square than that.

I found these images today on my computer, I cut it three years ago, but only pulled some very few, maybe 3 or 5 copies and never editioned. I am thinking now that maybe I should...

The relating post on my blog contains photos of a print that I put up and which can indeed be seen also from the backside. You can find it here:
