In the late 1930s Dunbar amused herself and her correspondents by designing notepaper in the form of pot plants trained to form a circular or oval shape, inside which she would write her message. She has taken this fantasy a step further with the suggestion perhaps that she herself is the message. The inverted shape below is a very simplified form of the woman’s head with nose and eye-lashes.
