30 Vengeful Designs Featuring Guy Fawkes

November 4, 2012

Sure, you’ve seen “V For Vendetta,” and you’ve undoubtedly seen Anonymous and the Occupy movement in the news, but do you know the real story behind those Guy Fawkes masks?  Guy Fawkes was instrumental in the Gunpowder Plot, a conspiracy to assassinate King James I of England more than four centuries ago. He was captured and tortured, then sent to be executed – but he jumped from the gallows first, breaking his own neck (apparently he didn’t want the Braveheart treatment). Anyway, the king had his kingdom celebrate with bonfires, and the celebration stuck year after year. Now, the date is known as Guy Fawkes night (remember, remember the 5th of November), and we’re celebrating by listing 30 designs featuring its namesake.
