A small edition has been printed posthumously by David Maes on Arches paper (250g/m²), (print size 26 x 20 cm - price per print £150)

This image shows the bell-ringer asleep on his watch.  John Kohan has pointed out that is tempted to read an allegorical meanings into this in a similar vein to the  works of Austin’s great mentor, Durer. 

A version of the print is in the collection of the Fitzwilliam Museum (Museum Accession Number: P.39-1981)
