Man, McPhee has written a lot of books -- according to Wikipedia, this is his 31st. I like this quite a bit -- it seems to be exactly the right tone for the subject -- but I want to see some hand lettering.
I disagree about the hand lettering. I think the title font is good, because it's the only thing to give the cover some structure. Hand lettering with these detailed illustrations would result in an unfocused mess.
Font, schmont! The whimsical design immediately caught my eye!
Yeah, y'all are probably right. :-)
