Maybe someone can explain something that puzzled me no end, and I never figured it out.
Some teachers provided mimeos or dittos that were reproductions of photographs or works of art. They clearly were not hand-drawn on the stencil; somehow the artwork was transferred accurately to the stencil. Did they perhaps buy them from a supplier? They were too well done to have been done even by the school art teacher (I mean, too well done given the clumsiness of the stencils and the thickness of the ink).
Anyone else remember those purple reproductions of famous paintings, portraits, etc?
