Times Carapace

Its not like most time travel stories, as this novel is character driven and doesn't rely on the usual science fiction angle.
Its written from both the time traveler and his wife's perspective.
I see its been made into a feature film and should be opening this winter, so I had to read it first.
Another great little Time Traveling film, 'The Butterfly Effect', has already had a sequel made,
but I've yet to see it.
It also deals with the physical danger's inherent in jumping from one situation and climate to another, without clothes.
Suggesting a kind of 'body carapace' is needed, as things like clothes just don't transmit.
This is where my image comes into play. Ive made many versions, and frankly, even I was beginning to run out of time...
I chose an ancient linear sundial rather than a clock face,
the flocking autumnal birds support seasonal change and the telegraph poles to show kind of low tech communication..
I'd like to think that Hitchcock would approve!
