Approximately seven sets of lines comprise this image. They begin in the upper left quadrant of the page, extend horizontally across approximately a third of the page, and then begin to deviate. Some sets immediately turn downward and extend vertically to the bottom of the page. Some run a little further horizontally before doing the same thing. One set extends up into the top right quadrant of the page, winds around what appears to be a reel, and circles back to end in the bottom left corner of the page.
