Affixed to alternating sheets of white-purple-white paper which is in turn affixed to a piece of heavy white paper. Sligth warping  which persist to the verso of the larger sheet of white paper typical of the medium. A slight discoloration where the edge  of the inner beveled mat rests, not appearing to be a true mat burn, but simply a result of friction or a collecting of dust/debris. The verso of the back sheet has some adhesive stains at the top from old hinges.
