Doing Nothing

I knew there would be some kind of couch / lounger on this cover; I didn't expect (nor can I understand) the rendering of the title. What's that, wood? Nailed together to form letters? It just doesn't seem to fit a book about sloth.

It looks like a dentist's chair.

Agreed (regarding lettering of title), those letterforms actually suggest hard work and industry to me. The only reason I would think they would be appropriate is if the title had been "Camp Doing Nothing"

Perhaps it's busy work -- work that accomplishes nothing.
