Fancy a Holiday?

Winter blues got you down? I hear Saturn's moon of Titan is lovely this time of year.

Above my desk there's an old art deco postcard advertising holidays to the Basque Coast. I got it while I was on holiday there in Biarritz a couple of years ago. I love its simple, art deco style, and the romance and elegance of travel that the image engenders, so I decided to borrow it and its layout for a more retro-futuristic holiday poster: the kind that would appear in a Venusian travel agent's office in the 1920s... if the 1920s had ever happened on Venus.

And let's face it, it's not every day you see a squid-faced woman dressed as a flapper.
