The Romantic Manifesto

ayn rand 3

This week’s cover challenge is for The Romantic Manifesto by Ayn Rand – a book of essays (plus one short story) about Ms Rand’s belief that the Romantic Period of Art is “the greatest achievement in art history.” We tried getting the book from the library to read but they don’t have a copy (it’s a good thing to have a relative in the library system – we can get mom’s sister to order one for the City!). So we had to settle with reading about it on Wikipedia and the Ayn Rand website (links below).  Here’s what we did:

Having no photographs that meet the requirements, I chose and illustration from Romantic Period illustrator, Arthur Rackham
