late 80’s we got a hand-me-down pc, our 1st,  & one of those printers that have punched holes along the sides of a paper roll. nic made illustrations in a primitive word processing program for a book i wrote & typed, ‘paperback band,’ using that pc and that punched paper. this is one of his digitized drawings. it was our card last year (2012).
