Illustrations were diverse and ranged from: Samurai swords, African fertility dolls, Sarah Storey's Olympic signet ring, Deborah Francis-White's suffragette coin necklace, Twiggy's makeup mirror (gifted from Fred Astaire), Sheryl Crow's guitar, "The Little Moneymaker" totalling 67 illustrations.

This was re-shared by Jennifer Hudson and 100's of people's social media pages that wanted to "disrupt their feeds".
