Probably by Steven - it looks like his style.

It may print a test image. The man or html pages are online and I could
not understand but I think you were supposed to use it with pbmtoppa to
calibrate the printer in case things were not already centered right.

I will experiment.

He collects Commodores - could be a 128.
