Customer Question
I have a lithograph with...
I have a lithograph with a line from a James Joyce novel "creator has created for his creatured ones a creation" then below it "O feonix/culprit! Ex nickylow malo come nickelmassed bonum"
The artwork appears to be an ancient map of Dublin in gold and brown tones with the number 3 laying on it's side in red.
/In pencile it is numbered 82/99 with "Tomal" then to the right the artist's signature of which I cannot make out.
I have had this piece and love it for over 25 years but am wondering if I need to insure as I have no value.

Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
What is the size?
At your convenience, please send more photos.
A complete image of the artwork including frame both front and back (do not remove from frame), a clear in-focus close-up of the signature and small print, and a close-up of the surface so I can see the texture will be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing on your board, then follow the steps on this link:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora
