  1. It’s a really cool pic, but I’m a sucker for the period, pulpy look I usually associate with your blog. But maybe that’s just me, as it was pulp that drew me here in the first place 😉


    • Ah, a pulp header would be just great.
      I’ve been looking for something pulpier, but the problem is, pulp images usually are in portrait format, not landscape: I’d need to cut or alter the images, and so far I’ve been unable to come up with something good.
      But I keep looking for images, and ideas…


  2. Wonderful image!! I like it 🙂
    Maybe it’s the best header since the first, the one with the map, which was my long time favourite…
    This one is gorgeous, it’s like an open window that let in a breath of fresh air! 🙂


  3. In a word, no. It’s a lovely image but the guy in the modern out door clothing distracts front the tone. Could that guy be any cleaner? Indy would roll over in his grave.
