Guys, this picking winners stuff is difficult. I can see why Monica and I have always chosen people at random in the past.
This time though, Monica and I decided to choose by effort. And that made this incredibly difficult. So difficult, in fact, that Monica and I had to choose at random between the finalists.
So, without further ramblings, the winner is Sheila at Bookjourney with this recreation:
Congrats to Sheila! Pick your book-alicious prize from the dewey website!!!!!
Monica and I would also like to make note of a couple of honorable mentions who were in serious competition for the top spot.
Anna of wordsandfood did an amazing job:
Her time and effort really shows!!!!!!! Monica and I were super-impressed!
We also wanted to recognize the work of LRAtRandom:
It took me longer than I would like to admit to realize one of the images wasn't actually a book cover.
Thank you to everyone who participated! There were so many fun and amazing recreations!!!!!!
You all have futures as cover designers, as far as I'm concerned.
