The verbal descriptions, typical of yearbook jargon, are embroidered onto each cloth figure with certain other editorializing done in colored thread and found objects."
The original object was scanned as a TIFF file on a Nikon Coolscan 4000 film scanner at approximately 4000 pixels on the long dimension. A 300 ppi JPEG file limited to 1024 pixels on the long dimension was then added to the CONTENTdm database.
