Every time Herba and Die Pö announce a new ‘Mach Was!’ topic for their community creativity project, I enthusiastically scream “yes” – and then never get ’round to it. Not this time! I am getting ready for a trip to London to see Uncle Vanya next week. And I decided to make a few goodies to bring along for the friends I am meeting up with, and for the yet unknown people I *might* meet at the SD.
For our RAnet Rescue Fundraiser I had made some UV mini book brooches.
That was *before* the actual script of the play’s new adaptation by Conor McPherson actually came out, and I worked with the provisional image as it was provided back then. In the meantime, the book has been published and the cover relates to the play’s poster design.
As you can see, I have made a miniature copy of it. The colours came out a little bit pale, but well, it’s still discernible, right?
It’s a 3cm mini version of the script – it has actual pages, but they are, of course, not printed with the text. However, there may be a little surprise contained in the book, somewhere…
I made 40 mini books, all ready to be pinned to a fan bosom 😉.
So, should anybody see me in London between Thursday and Sunday next week, do say hello to me – I have a freebie for you, if you want it. No questions asked, no charge – these are just freebies to share.
Should there be left-overs (which I strongly suspect), I will pass them on by mail later on.
I also made a custom UV book for a fellow fan – personally, I like that cover design better… You can guess why…
So yeah, here’s hoping that the trip to the theatre will not only be entertaining but also yield a few nice encounters. As I said, do talk to me when you spot me. I am a respectable middle-aged 😬, chubby, blond spectacle wearer. Will be dressed in a dark brown half-length jacket, with a blue handbag that has a “deRAnged” pin on it 😂. Will probably be loud and bubbly while waiting at the SD – and then completely clam up when RA turns up 🤐.
Happy International Women’s Day, everyone, and see you soon, I hope!
