OK, Exotic

This is my contribution to this week theme at Take a Word: EXOTIC. My country is one of those places who come to people's minds when they think of exotic, or at least some of the stuff we've got in Brazil, such as paradisiac beaches, macaws, parrots, samba, carnival etc. So, I've decided to take up the cause and, therefore, I've recovered this beautiful cover of an old magazine called Paratodos designed by a brilliant artist named J. Carlos. It's a 1927 edition and I've altered it a little bit.

This is the original cover.

Frame: Maddy Fernandez; butterfly: Dover sample.
