« The loose sheets were too flimsy to be handled, displayed or stored unless strengthened by a large backing cloth, cut to the same size as the overall print. This would be fitted with two long wooden poles, one along the top for hanging, the other at the bottom for weighting, on which the print could be rolled for storage and unrolled for display. Such pasting and rolling was very simple and flexible and offered an easy method of storage.?Very few prints mounted on their original cloth backings have survived to the present. » (A. Griffiths, The Print Before Photography, Londres, The British Museum, 2016, p. 413).
