Curved electrotype relief printing plate used to print page 66 of the 19 February 1972 edition of the Saturday Review.
This curved electrotype plate was used in February 1972 to print page 66 of the Saturday Review (1921–1986), an American weekly magazine that had reached its highest circulation of 660,000 in 1971. The thin electrotype plate, faced with nickel or chrome, is mounted onto a heavier metal surface that can withstand the pressure of printing. It includes a letterpress half-tone reproduction of a photograph of General George S. Patton Jr., the subject of the article.
