Newsprint

Microscopy Picture of the Day 2020-01-26

Here is newsprint with the word "trying" printed on it. Newsprint is made mostly of wood pulp. Fibers of the pulp can be seen in the image. A 0.5 mm diameter pencil lead is shown on the left for scale. Note the letters of the printed word are not pixelated, suggesting a traditional newspaper printing technique such as offset printing.

Equipment used: Canon EOS Rebel T5i with 49 mm long extension tube.
