Once upon a time, the symbol didn't exist. And then someone was like, "You should have a symbol that carries throughout the book" and I was like, "Okay" and then the symbol existed.
The symbol has progressed from a crooked blob to a more crooked blob that's even blobbier. Here are my attempts at drawing that probably make the people in class wonder if I'm a psychopath who has an obsessive need to draw a weird shape all over the margins of her notebook.
Should I be paying attention in class? Probably. But MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
P.S. "Ancien Regime" is not a typo, but the political system in France pre-Revolution.
