Mairin,

I don't know what to say other than I am completely IN AWE.  These are
beautiful!

I love everything about them --

* the bubbles in the background
* the callouts that still let you see the whole message on each of the
four posters
* the wonderful iconography
* the way you can turn the quartet into one big mega-poster (collectible
stickers, anyone?)

Can I make one *teeny tiny* suggestion which you can take or leave?  It
might be worthwhile to put in the corner of each poster an actual
complete Fedora infinity bubble, maybe the size of 2x2 of the background
bubbles.  You could put it in a different place for each poster, but
maybe the corner opposite the quarter-infinity logo would make sense.

I am dazzled beyond belief!
