TAKE A WORD


AND THEN THERE WERE NONE

I love this lady, who for me,  epitomizes everything Art Deco and so fits perfectly into a Crime Film Poster for Rene Clair's adaptation of Agatha Christie's : And Then There Were None.  A good thing since guest host, Anja, has chosen POSTER (preferably crime related) as her word for inspiration at this week's Take a Word challenge.

To be truthful, I have no idea what the film (or book) is about but when I found the clipart hand and dagger and the fizzy pop advert lady, who to me looks lofty, arrogant and distant, even before I gave her a cigarette in a holder,  I knew it would create a story. 

Everything I've used to create  this poster is free to use (unless you tell me differently).  Credit should be given for the fonts to Obsidian Dawn.

Thank you for looking.

I read the book when I was a teenager and became a fan of the old lady. Your poster is wonderfully designed and suits perfectly to the kind of characters she used to create.
