I don't think I like these quite as much as the place-holders we've been shown for awhile now. It's probably that I think those looked closer to the old 70s books they were emulating than these do, but only by a little. Still, these are very nice covers and I do like them quite a bit. No complaints from me. Sort of like choosing between ice cream and cheese cake for dessert. I may have a favorite, but I'm certainly not going to complain about either!
