Within the edition of about 25 to 30 impressions printed by Louis Roy, variations appear as to the order in which the blocks and stencils were used. In this impression the order appears to be yellow, then black and finally orange. It could be one of the impressions recorded by Kornfeld as being issued pasted onto cardboard.
