Notes:   Issued in the Year of the Prawn   [ Album Page ]
A most unusual stamp with reports of transfiguration within the engraving. The TOA has been printed in at least three separate runs. The first run can be distinguished most easily by the lack of any printing on the selvedge (or selvage, the edges of the sheet) while the second version does have printing. The latest print run includes the new s and has an upside down falling man in the picture in the gutter.
The left side of the gutter reads: ANKH-MORPORK - THE YEAR OF THE PRAWN while the right side reads: TEEMER & SPOOLS - TOWER OF ART - ONE DOLLAR.
