Overview

Did you know:

That Woodstock was initially proposed as "Three Days of Peace, Love, and Monster Trucks"?

That Dr. Seuss experimented with numerous titles before settling on The Cat in the Hat, including The Manatee Who Uses Profanity and The Horse Going Through a Painful Divorce?

That before settling for a zip-up cardigan, Mr. Rogers insisted on starting each show in his Dallas Cowboys half-shirt?

That James Bond's famous self-introduction was originally, "Bond. James Bond. James Susan Bond."?

Or that John Gray's bestseller was originally titled Men Are from Mars, Women Won't Shut Up?

Illustrated with album covers, book jackets, scripts, photographs, everyday objects, and other artifacts, Rough Draft is a visually stunning, hilariously funny parody of pop culture from the writers whom Time magazine calls "wildly inventive."

Let the humor writers at Modern Humorist lead you on a tour of the world that almost was in Rough Draft, a sidesplitting collection of album covers, scripts, book covers, and photographs. From ice cream flavors (Cherry Orbach) to a drawing of Harry Potter (with a PlayStation logo on his forehead), Rough Draft shows just how hilarious things could have been.
