Please do remember the Fifth of November: Gunpowder, Treason and Plot
This is an image I created in November 2000. What an age ago! A different life entirely. The top half is taken from Roy Strong's book 'The English Year', and of course shows the plotters who tried to blow up Parliament, including a certain Guy Fawkes. The bottom half is a genuine calendar for November 2000. I used the font known as 'Caslon Antique VL' and (imagined) olde worlde spelling to round off the effect. Note that everyone wore witches' hats then! Quel fun.
As I write this, only two hours to go before the Deed Poll signing. Woo hoo!
