This was *an idea*, not a print-ready version. It was meant to start the
creative juices flowing, not to answer all logistical questions associated
with such an idea...

Hey, better late than never. FWIW number 1 is also "iffy." I'd much rather
see it as the small letter "l" of this font, but this is obviously not
possible when you have "l" in Vol. right next to it which would make it look
silly... Still, that fact unfortunately does nothing to improve my liking of
the number 1's appearance...

I can't because more I think about the subtitle, which is nowcoupled by its
overemphasis IMHO smells of "bling over substance" which means we are
shooting ourselves in the foot. But then again, that is probably just me.

All that being said, I still feel that the "Tux Power" font you are
proposing and/or color simply do not do much for me.

I would rather look at it from the perspective "we care so much that we
decided to redo the cover, and if we already decided to go that far, we
should not settle for anything less but perfection."

Best wishes,
