    To be honest I liked the first one best – which was the one with two boys but with blue background. You could see trees, like forest, and it gave the whole picture a melancholic feeling. Because it wasn’t included here, I chose Alternative cover, which is the closest to the one I liked.
    Both black and fireworks covers are just weird considering the stories inside – fireworks cover is extremely random and black one looks very depressing and I feel has not much to do with Celebration.

      Considering the title is Stories of Celebration I’d go as far as to say that fireworks are commonly associated with celebrations. Ergo fireworks are not random at all but convey to viewers an act of celebration.

    I went for #3 because it shows more of an actual celebration going on, and I liked the colours! 🙂 Pinned on my board (all 4) with links directing back here for people to choose!
