Description:
Ink on paper offset color lithograph depicting a cartoonish company mascot, a seventeenth-century courier dressed in a red suit and wearing a red pointed hat; the figure is studying a kiosk in his hand with a magnifying glass; enclosed within the kiosk, the imagery of the poster is repeated so that the man studies a poster of himself studying a poster of himself.
