Emma: Strawberry

For the header graphic for the Emma discussion board I chose a strawberry because of the references to strawberries in the lead up to the Box Hill picnic, a pivotal point in the novel. It was also a referrence to some frivollous fan fiction that had been written about an interlude with Mr Knightley in the Donwell Abbey strawberry beds, and Amy's liking for strawberries.

Originally I wanted to use the idea of the games with alphabetical letters that Frank Churchill and Emma teasingly play, but for design reasons prefered the strawberry. However, Kali Pappas, who was a charter poster at Pemberley, and the host and co-host of the Emma board until mid 2003, used a similar idea very successfully at her Emma Adaptations Pages (housed at Pemberley 1997 - 2003) until its redesign in 2003.
