This set of prints features three distinct print-making styles, including a linocut print by Edward Francis Kiiza, a finely rendered intaglio print titled In a bus by Tenywa for whom not much information is known and a rare aquatint print by George Lilanga, more prominently known for his paintings and sculptures.
