These illustrations reinterpret the meaning of the idiom Hot off the Presses, a phrase that was initially used in regard to fresh and sensational media. This work mainly targets the aspect of the excitement and chaos involved in the distribution of news. In so doing, it picks up the whimsy of childhood games, namely tin can telephones for exchanging messages over a wire. The illustrations refrain from using too many colours and follow a fun approach in conveying the feeling of the hectic and exiting bustle in the modern business world.
