Design History:
Each supplemental set design is based upon at least one of the designs in the primary series. It consists of two basic parts, the background image and an overlay image. Occasionally, the background image may be enhanced with highlights included on the overlay plates, and here the third color is used on both.

For wfx13, the usual design derivation has been reversed. Instead of using the silhouette of wf20 as the background image, it appears instead as the overlay image. The other image for wfx13, showing a kind of flower represented in another design in this series, but in an entirely new composition, is then shifted to the background image position. However, instead of printing that silhouette in ink, the background has been printed leaving the silhouette as plain paper.
