My graphics work: An instruction manual for a 18th century napkin press

For the Communication module, I had to take an object form the Victoria and Albert Museum, right next door to Imperial College and create an instruction manual for it. I chose to make one for a napkin press I saw at the V&A. This press is a press to neatly flatten linens for the house in the 18th century. One of the uses could be to neatly crease napkins for the dinner table. 

Here is a link to the archive record in the V&A website. Here are the original press in pictures.
