Sweet design!!! I understand most of the literture references but I'm missing a couple. Does anyone know what book the following are for:
The crown over the 'O'
The plane dropping the bomb
The red frame
The red circle with the three rifles
The wings over the mountains with the flames underneath
Crown over "O" is "Lord of the Rings"
Red circle and rifles is "War and Peace"?
Wings/Mountains/Flames is, I think, Dante's "Divine Comedy".
But what's the bowler hat and glass? The capital A? The pig's head on a stick? The bird with the dotted trail? Room 101?
Ah! Pigs head on a stick is "Lord of the Flies".
The bowler hat and glass of milk is A Clockwork Orange, room 101 is 1984, or if you want a newer reference, it could be The Matrix (Neo's room was 101, Trinity's 303 if I recall correctly)
The capital A is "The Scarlet Letter" not "Easy A". Pig & Spider is "Charlotte's Web" not Homer's Spider Pig. House riding tornado "The Wizard of Oz". Alice in Wonderland Rabbit, X marks "Treasure Island". Bram Stoker's Dracula, The Lion , The Witch and the Wardrobe, Moby Dick is the last one.
My best guess about the frame is snow white (mirror mirror...), just a guess though. Still don't know what the plane dropping the bomb is...
The frame could be The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Plane dropping the bomb could be "Dr Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb"
The empty picture frame is The Picture of Dorian Gray. The bombing plane is for Catch 22.
I think the pig's head on a pike is Animal Farm. Only one I can't figure out is the O with a crown.
Pig's head on a stick is Lord of the Flies.
The hat with the glass underneath is A Clockwork Orange.
Room 101 is 1984.
