    Moonstrips Empire News is a portfolio of 100 (or 98) photo-lithographs and screenprints by Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, a forerunner of British pop art. The prints are contained in a pink Perspex (acrylic) box.

    The lettering on the title page appears to be inspired by Deutsch Black (or perhaps it is the other way around, but the font was designed a year earlier, in 1966). Alterations include wider, monospaced glyphs, and a ‘t’ with more coverage.
