Abstract

A transmission liquid crystal display (LCD) matrix is deposited upon the aligned exposed edges of a set of superposed transparent plastic sheets, all but one of whose other edges or faces are rendered light reflective. Colored light is supplied to the one other exposed edge, preferably with three colors in successive groups of three, so as to emerge at the aligned exposed edges. Sections of the matrix are rendered transparent to allow the colored light to become visible. A plurality of rectangular transparent plastics sheets are formed into a stack 1 (Fig. 1). The sheets are similar in shape, and are silvered on all but two edges, including the large rectangular faces.
