Hoggely lady

What is going on here? The adult harry potter edition that was meant to arrive at our home address on Saturday arrived at work on Wednesday. I opened it today to get the returns note out, and glanced at the back cover. What?! Who is that horrifically ugly lady? Why, it's JK Rowling, who I've always thought looked quite good, especially after the money came in. What the bloody hell have they done to the poor woman in this photo? She looks like Victoria Wood's mother in Dinner Ladies. Did she sign this off? Shocking.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
