The second place winner is perfect.

Scott Simpson's design is wonderfully illustrated...

Ashley Watson: Nice typography. Not appropriate for the topic, but very modern and inventive type-only cover.

Everything else is trying too hard in my humble opinion.

My personal favorite is Stuart Harris's (second row, all the way on the right), but I'm a sucker for anything Saul Bass-y.

Really? I think that one is very amateurish and way to referential to the whole Saul Bass style. Originality please. There is a time and place for that kind of post-modernism and it's not on this cover in my opinion.
