Ned and Topsy Silhouettes

I've been enthusiastically making pop culture silhouettes to sell on Etsy, and to put on the walls of our new home. Well, thanks in large part to Raine's amazing cartoons, I decided that Ned and Topsy definitely have distinctive enough profiles to make them silhouettes. I put this together yesterday:


The background of the profiles is two pages of the Kelmscott Chaucer. I thought...what better way to show the cooperative and brilliantly artistic relationship between these two men than with pages of one of the masterpieces they created together?

I like those. They look gorgeous on your wall.

Oh, awesome!! The Kelmscott Chaucer is a beautiful touch. Did I mention I LOVE the way your house is decorated, too..?

Just beautiful, and the Kelmscott Chaucer background is inspired. I do wonder how the silhouettes would look against a coloured background - William and Jane Morris against the Daisy pattern that he designed and she embroidered on their Red House bedroom wall-hangings, perhaps?

These are beautiful, I would love that on my wall!

Thank you everyone for the compliments!! Victorianlibrarian, I almost used the Daisy pattern, actually...great minds think alike ;) I thought the Chaucer was a nice choice for Ned and Topsy because they worked on it together, but I bet Daisy would be lovely for Jane.
