Not getting into politics here, I love what you did in the center, I HATE what you did to the edges. I know part of it is the poor image posted quality. audacity of hope - Google Image Search may want to try and do something a little more similar to the original as far as text.

Yeah, I am getting a friend to fix it up for me. I didn't want to use the book cover... I'll post the new one once he is done.

Not sure I'm convinced on the president elect, but that label is pretty nice.

I like the idea, but the rest of the label doesn't really fit. Hope you don't mind, but I played around with your label a little bit to be more consistent with Shepard Fairey's style.
