“During the printing of the 1999 Melways Directory (the most popular Melbourne streetmap), a solitary ant accidentally wandered  onto the black printing plate of Page 1A, a detail of the central city. Embedded into the printing plate, its image was printed on 20,000 copies of that edition. The ant was positioned over what is now Southern Cross Railway Station,  creating a surreal image of a giant mutant insect menacing the commuters.”
