High Society Bookplate Ideas

In Weekly Update #65 Dave Sim asked for bookplate ideas for the High Society Signed & Numbered Diamond Edition. Here are the entries received so far. Sean will have more tomorrow here on AMOC.

Will Collier:
My suggestion:  this panel on top (with the fragment of the left-hand panel word balloon removed), a space below for the signature, and the gold "High Society" logo below that (superimposed over a silhouette of the Regency would be even better):

Famous The Aardvark:
A few ideas.

I'm a knucklehead. If I'd realized the bookplate needed a space for a number, I'd have rewritten Cerebus's dialogue, a la:

"DAVE WILL SIGN YOUR COPY OF HIGH SOCIETY ONLY WHEN CEREBUS HAS YOUR MONEY! [number], THAT IS!"

Okay, that's not the greatest, but still...

Famous the Aardvark, who submitted the middle grouping of mockups, had this to say about the one with a floating quote above Cerebus and a beer stein--

"quotation is not from a Cerebus comic, but from a movie called High Society"

And a fine quote it is :)
