Comment by Bill Ritchie: Ted Riley was a student in my printmaking class in the Autumn of 1970, and I was teaching collagraph, doing demonstrations on building a collagraph plate. I finished the plate, but it needed to dry, and I gave it to Ted and said he could print it himself, which he did. Forty-five years later, he contacted me and told me the story, and I asked him to show me the print and I signed it for both of us - me for my making the plate and Ted's name for printing it.
