eye give Mouse Mats
Seven present-buying days to go...
Wednesday 17 December 1997
Lifted from images in the National Portrait Gallery, four icons have been given the mouse mat treatment and all ought to find a workstation this Christmas. Henry VIII's bellicose gaze should get Internet slackers back on the straight and narrow while both Oscar Wilde and Virginia Woolf attract the sort of cultish devotee for whom a themed mouse mat will be but the tamest of authorial nick-nacks. Finally, the Shakespeare mat will be a hit with that person in your life who constantly rabbits on about how the Bard would be creating masterpieces for the CD-rom rather than the stage if he were alive today.
