Here is a second version (and hopefully the last one, but I'm still waiting on feedback from my "father-in-law", so if you want to make suggestions, there is still time...
) of the final layout for the Poe Project!
Here are the elements and references:
A pencil portrait of Edgar Allan Poe
(might be flipped, but this one was done after a painting, not a daguerreotype, so actually it shouldn't);
A haunted mansion
, with red windows referring to both The Fall of the House of Usher
and The Masque of Red Death
A black cat and a raven
, referring to the tale and poem of the same names;
A creepy dead tree
, as in The Fall of the House of Usher
A moon with whirlwind
(The Fall of the House of Usher
) transforming into a whirlpool, and a man riding a barrel
, illustrating A Descent into the Maelström
A flipped manuscript
of The Spirits of the Dead
(very light overlay);
(which will be in special colour-changing ink), as reference to The Gold-Bug
Finally, Poe's signature
, birth and death dates, the logo of company for which I'm doind this, and the year of the calendar.
I would like to thank my boy-friend Mat
, and also (in no particular order):
Your feedback and support during the various steps of the project mean a lot.
, all! I will get this job! Right?
