London was the centre of the printing industry in the 19th century, with well over a third of the total labour force and producing over half the total output of the British printing industry. This printer, 'C S Elliott', is using this leaflet as a trade or business card. It is a very versatile piece of work, it demonstrates his abilities as well as indicating and introducing design trends. It is visually attractive, especially as it is printed on pink paper, and is intended to catch the eye of the middle and upper classes who could afford to pay for his services.
