Thank you, Pip, for the quick response!

No, I haven't seen or heard of the existence of Ruttmann's hand-painted
prints... Do you know where they are archived or where/how I might have a
chance to see them?

Also, aside from the bleed, can you tell me how similar these digital
versions are to the original?

Thanks so much!
