Brideshead Revisited- Revisited
We have been watching the ITV 1980s production of Brideshead Revisited, which makes for good viewing. It is also something of a tweed-fest. Regular readers of this blog will know we are currently undergoing a tweed craze in this house. I say "we" but really mean the other half, as I haven't quite gone down the Miss Jean Brodie route myself! (yet) . The series inspired me to pick up the 1970s copies of Evelyn Waugh's novels that we have and I was reminded of how great these covers are. The cover design is credited as Bentley/Farrell/Burnett . I also did a couple of little drawings myself of the Brideshead characters.
