A Round Tuit

I am a champion procrastinator, not something to be all that proud of but one always feels that one will get around to it eventually so...

We have had two plates like this since I was small, they are really rather clever little Tuits that are round hence A Round Tuit. (Cheesy Grin!) This one recently was smashed and was thrown away but not before some photos to preserve our memory!

What I really love in this image is the figure/ground contrast and also the ability of the brain to 'see' a complete and cohesive shape despite it being all broken. Have a read and decipher the text, maybe you'll need to get a Tuit for yourself!
