I'm just not sure what I need to do to make this happen - someone on Twitter suggested that I'd need to embed the image in a "Newton Book" but they didn't reply to inquiries about how such a book would be created, and of course "newton book" is a search term that returns a LOT of totally-unrelated content, so I haven't made much progress.

Hi Huxley,

You could use this app on Newton: http://www.unna.org/view.php?/applications/backdrops/AvisBackdrop <http://www.unna.org/view.php?/applications/backdrops/AvisBackdrop>

Avi’S Backdrop is backdrop app and one of the options is to display picture as a ‘wallpaper’ on your Newton.

If you send me your logo, I can make that ’Newton Book’ picture for you. Just send me that logo (any format) and tell me which Newton do you want to use.
