    I really like your redo!

  2. Anne says:

    This is my favorite! You should have us vote for our favorites from each decade when you finish.

  3. Ed Spicer says:

    Can’t say this one really works for me–the very first time I looked at it, I thought it was water! And even though the title is OUT of the dust, I don’t think this cover should have even a hint of water.

    Ooh. I like this one. I really, really like this one!
