I like no 2 and 5. I also like in the first of the "legs" covers the way that the legs are going into the picture, not out of it - but in the one you have chosen, I like that the top part of the mannequin is out of the picture, so that there could be a whole body attached to the legs. Many of the covers are rather cluttered, so I like that you chose a simple one.
It must have been hard to choose--so many are good. But I think you chose well!
It was really interesting to see these, I'm glad you posted them.

Joyce, it was hard to choose. But it was fun going through the process.

Catherine, I liked the Kitchen, the Light Bulb, and Washing Machine #3. I liked two of them because of the clutter, but I did a bit of market research and got the best reaction from the mannequin legs.

No one seemed to like the mannequin top.

I have to say I love the "lightbulb" one. So cool. And the one with the legs and the washing machine.
I like 1 and 11 - I don't know why just a good gut about them...some of these are pretty great though! congrats on inching ever-closer to d-day!

Definitely #6. So evocative... but I do think you've/they've chosen the best of the lot for your cover, January. Congrats again!

Hi January,

Great choices to pick from !

My favorites were 1, 4, 16,

My second favorite was 6 (though I think the lightbulb thing has been done).

My least favs were 2 & 3

*** For me, if I saw 1, 4, or 16 on the shelf, I'd pick them up. They are unique and eye-catching. And I had a positive gut reaction to all of them.

Let us know what you choose!

i'm so fascinated by these: that there are so many, that they are so evocative! i think you made the right choice but i also liked many of them.

curious: is the image of the mannequin legs in one of your pieces specifically or does it just work with the collection as a whole?

Really like 3, 6 and the definitive one too...congrats. January.
January said…
Thanks everyone!

FYI, if you missed it, the chosen cover is in my previous post.

So, I'm seeing many of these for the first time. I really like the beach ones!

(Not that I don't love the one you chose!!!!)
