Description

Publisher’s Colophon
The colophon is in portrait orientation, boxed in by a double-lined rectangular border. Plain banners run across the bottom and top of the image. Printed at the top is “LEONARD” [caps], and at the bottom is printed “SMITHERS” [caps]. The artwork centred in this frame depicts a man at the extreme left. He is in profile facing to the right. He is wearing a tunic that covers his chest but leaves his arm bare. In his hand he is holding a hatchet, although you can only see the handle and the bottom edge of the blade. He is poised to swing it forward or throw it. The man has shoulder length hair. On the right side of the image stands a tall plant with flame-like leaves. In the background is a brick wall, with a wooden door on which hangs a horseshoe. An opening on the right may be a window.
