Anyway, I thought a lot about this and still think that some things are sacrosanct, unless, and this is a big unless, you have the experience, the skill, and the cojones to change an icon to suit yourself. To me this would indicate a person of some stature in the business, who has earned the right to interpret because this interpretation is equal to the original. I'm not talking about some wannabe's who would take something and mix metaphors and change it just to be different, like Tarte Tatin of Strawberry and Kiwi with 5-spice caramel in a pool of lemongrass infused earl grey tea creme anglaise.

I know Photoshop 5.0 has a lot to do with what those books look like, but you might see what I mean. Nick Malgieri I can do, but the other two are a stretch, even after 25 years.
