#photorehabcovermakeover Week 9

It’s Week 9 of the Photo Rehab Cover Makeover run by Desley Jane of Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist and Lucile of Lucile de Goday. Actually, it might not be Week 9 — I seem to have got mixed up as I titled Green Mile #7; that’s what comes of dealing with far too many emails and an explosion of other people’s lovely blog posts!

I do know, however, that this week’s challenge, as you can see above, was to do a cover for George Orwell’s classic, 1984.

I chose to use I Can See What You’re Doing as the background to give the impression of a barricade. I added  the same photo from Unsplash that I used in Cabinet of Curiosities (the whirly window), and a medical drawing of an eyeball from The Graphics Fairy.

The font I’ve used (Bodoni) is not what I would have wished. I lost so many fonts last year when the computer died at the same time as the back-up (of course) and remembering the names and finding them again is proving almost impossible. The one I had in mind was what you might call ‘dirty’ and eaten into. Ah well!

Take care and keep laughing!

The Stuff They Won't Include in Any Tourist Guide: The Real England

The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
