Awesome and awesomer...

When I saw the cover art for the upcoming 50th anniversary edition of Peg Bracken's classic I Hate to Cook Book, my only thought was How adorable. But now I've seen the original version, featuring cover art drawn by Hilary Knight (the dude who drew the Eloise books) and I think updating it was actually a mistake. Here's the new cover:

Cute, huh? But how could anyone improve upon this?

That frown, the glassy, grumpy stare, the flushed-with-rage cheeks... I want one! That's totally how I look in the kitchen!

She looks like a zombie version of a 50s housewife. I think I've found my next Halloween costume idea....

That would be an awesome costume... and actually, the more I look at it, the more I like the original cover. I probably would have updated the font, but otherwise left well enough alone.
