Looks like they don't have a camera and they used a flat top scanner.

Still trying to figure out what the first photo in the thread is, but it reminds me of the photo below! Look way up the worm hole. See the detail a little focusing can show?  :)

Note: Terry just pointed out that Briny has also had the same idea. Sorry, I hadn't read his post, but I have been thinking of the Looney Tunes logo ever since I saw the original photo as Briny did! Guess Briny and I both use Google image search!

I guess this is an auction for a book. I stumbled upon it in a search for AE phones. The authour is AE Harper. Even for a book I would think they might have been able to include a better picture than this one which is the ONLY picture in the auction.
