Ellerman's "City Line" Steamers to India

Another double page spread for my Collage Coterie Moleskine.  This salty old sea dog was, in fact, King Edward V11 ( 1841-1910, King of England 1901-1910).  I put a little bit of colour in his cheeks to make him a little bit more weather beaten.  The stamps actually bear the image of his son, George V, who reigned from 1910-1930.
