    Any chance you might show a page from the book that Cermak was actually nominated for?

    Impressive group. I do think past NOMINEES should be able to vote too though.

  3. FYI, further examples of Teagan Gavet’s work can be seen at http://www.nordguard.com. I’m not sure the Twitter account you’re linking to has much information…
