Does this ever happen to you? Once you see something once and then start thinking about it that same thing keeps popping up?
Well, that's what happened with this! I was "googling" Steampunk and JULES VERNE kept popping up, then I was down at THE STAMP ATTIC with SARAH and she pointed out an octopus stamp and said it would work for 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea so I bought it and then last week in an old book shop in Liverpool there were several copies of that very book for 20p so I bought one of them (that makes up for the full price M&B!).
At that point I thought "OK this is meant to be" and gave in, so here is my JULES VERNE 20,000Leagues Under The Sea inspired journal page!
OK so I realise that it is a squid in the story and this is an octopus but come on, it was a miracle to find a octopus stamp never mind a squid!!
This was actually the title page from the book I bought, the rest got lost under the other stuff but I kept the title and author wording.
