Saul Steinberg: Wedding Document

From the Bliss Collection comes this very official-looking Wedding Document by Saul Steinberg. Steinberg dated this October 15, 1966. As with any Steinberg document, the writing, the signatures, and the stamps are all indecipherable nonsense, but the overall effect is fancifully plausible and inspired.
