Book Jackets: Type, Image, & Non-Computer

Lots of improvements made on the book jacket designs for Streetcar Named Desire! The turn-in date is nearing and with that, we're moving towards designing the 1st pages as well as the inside of the book jacket. But until I upload those, here are the revised book jackets.

1st set (Type-based): All these covers reference the famous Stanley/Stella scene (if have yet to see it, check out this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1A0p0F_iH8)

2nd set (Image-based): This set references the ominous bare light bulb (my apologies to the squished one, not sure how that happened)

3rd set (Non-computer based): This set is hand-drafted type, cut out with an exacto knife and held up to a lamp with a textured shade. More refinements to come with this. 

One last note, feel free to comment! I have finally figured out to read and comment back (thank you to Marilyn Buel for suggesting that I solve that problem). I always love to hear your thoughts and opinions!
