The Piccadillies, published by the Petersburg Press in London, offer a sophisticated example of Roth's complex and inventive print-making techniques. The image was taken from a tourist postcard of Piccadilly Circus (which is reproduced on the reverse of each print). Roth made a lithograph reproduction of the image, which he then overprinted in screenprint, using a range of one to twenty-six colours from his hand-drawn stencils. Successive layers of ink have been allowed to crack on some prints, while the introduction of iron filings provides one sheet with a rich texture.
