The deadline for entries to the 1709 Blog competition to choose a new logo passed last night. We received two entries that were truly logos, which are portrayed here, as well as some hilarious sketches from Claudia Roggero which, if she permits, we hope to use one day as illustrations when an appropriate article arises. Anyway, the "1709" roundel comes from Abel & Imray's James Legg and the 17:09 clock motif comes from David Brophy (FRKelly). Each would be a worthy successor to Queen Anne, who is looking a little blogged out and definitely needs a break.
At the top of the 1709 Blog's side bar you'll find a poll which will enable you to vote for your preference. Do take the trouble to vote -- the appearance of this blog depends on you!
