Celebrating 100 years of Jam and Jerusalem

I am so pleased and honoured to have been asked to create the cover of WI magazine which celebrates their centenary this year. The cover includes lots of signs and symbols that represent the 100 years
including the Canadian flag, their welsh origins, link to the Queen, and some of the campaigns that the women have been involved in over the years such as Keep Britain Tidy, Fairtrade, breast cancer, AIDS, organ donor, equal pay,  village schools and of course votes for women. The two women in the foreground represent the women from 1915 and 2015. Of course I couldn’t  forget to add the jam and jerusaleum!
